A grep shows that only spi/Makefile uses addsuffix...

(The rules in the pgxs makefiles are "emulated" and does the same
functionality, but I don't actuallyi *parse* the pgxs makefile)

But. Given the comments from you and Peter, I'll hold back on doing this
and attempt to parse it. For the current testing ("just get the darn tests
running"), I'll hard-code the spi exception in the msvc build code instead
- pending a proper parser for it.
