Some configure tests are linking, and contrary to the build system, those don't rely on calling $LINK directly, but instead go through $CC. When $CC is clang-cl, that still invokes link.exe.

Interestingly, the change makes one configure test have a different
result (localeconv ends up being found when it used not to be found),
but the result of that check is actually not used on Windows because we
set HAVE_LOCALECONV manually.
