On Windows, configure may choose a 64-bit version of makensis if it is in the PATH. This is problematic since an NSIS plugin we rely on is 32-bit making compiling the installer for Firefox impossible. We should ensure that configure does NOT choose a 64-bit version of makensis.
I think there are two parts here: - one is that configure should try to find a 32-bits version of makensis if it can find one on its own (by checking in /ming32/bin even if it's not in PATH, for example ; there's a complication, though: /mingw32/bin is a msys path, configure don't support those) - and configure should check that once it found an makensis, it is 32-bits.

Comment on attachment 8781319 [details] Bug 1291944 - Verify makensis binary is 32-bits; Please take another look at this since I want to be sure you agree with the EnumString usage.
