I like the idea.  However, shouldn't you also guarantee that WINDRES is
set even if $host is not windows-based, so that an inherited $WINDRES in a
Linux environment does not cause spurious triggering of the AM_CONDITIONAL?

I'd argue the reverse, so users can set WINDRES in the environment
before running configure, no?

That would try to add an icon to a Linux executable. I don't think it's the right thing to do, setting WINDRES in the environment _will_ work with Eric's proposed change when targeting Windows.
