Im looking at the appveyor environment.

So I should make a pull request for some of those Unix tools to add common
default paths if sys.platform is win32?

Should I also include in the tests using the path from test.where_is as
part of the PATH in the generated Sconstruct? If not, is it useful for
those tests to fail if the tool is in a non-standard location?
