Can we remove the configure.os2 script?

I think that's because now it tries to compile all headers and not
only use the preprocessor to search them.

Try the latest CVS. I've added host detection macros and search for
msgfmt$EXEEXT now. 

I've also changed some other OS/2 related macros so tell me, if
something doesn't work any longer.

Bye the way: do the binaries have the correct .exe extension?
Otherwise I guess some Makefile work will be necessary.
