The .exe suffix is already there:

cd grass61/include/Make

grep EXE *
Platform.make:EXE_SUFFIX          =
Platform.make.in:EXE_SUFFIX          = @EXE_SUFFIX@

On MS-Windows, it is set to .exe.

But the real solution is that someone implements a C version
of r.out.gdal and then to get rid of r.out.{png,ppm,tiff}.
