On Windows, src/pl/plpython/Makefile has a rule whose target line expands to
something like "python33.def: C:/Windows/system32/python33.dll". When doing a
MinGW build with Cygwin's make-3.81, that line elicits an error:
Makefile:69: *** target pattern contains no `%'. Stop.
Seeing a second colon, make treats the line as a static pattern rule. Perhaps
the MinGW project ships a make patched to avoid this, or perhaps folks
building PostgreSQL override WINDIR. In any event, that dependency is not
useful: we can't build the named file if it's absent, and an error from
pexports is a good as an error from make. Let's drop the dependency.
Note that this affects --without-python builds during "make clean".
