That's right.

I would prefer having the script take a host option instead (if it can't
figure it out by itself), like:

 perl ./curl/tests/ --host netware

You could start with having builds on win32 assume MSVC if no --host is given,
to make the already running msvc autobuilds continue to run fine unmodified.

Of course, --host could be called something else.
