The configure script itself wont crash, right? The generated and
executed testapp will crash but the configure script will keep on
running after displaying some kind of warning? Or does it really end
with the crash of the testapp?

During the execution of the configure script or on "configure --help"? A
generic warning for all operating systems, or one specific for Windows?
