During build, we create a touch file which is literally named '_the..'.
While cygwin handles this without issues, Windows believes this to be a
file with the extension "." and can't touch it, that is, not delete or
This patch renames this file (and others created at the same time) to
have a proper extension (".marker"), which Windows deals with properly.
