Commit distro:3b31eb52e2bc added a "require CGI" to be able to "fail early" for critical missing dependencies.

Unfortunately on Windows, this breaks the CLI scripts - tools/configure. CGI appears to force binmode on STDIN and STDOUT. This causes chomp to fail to remove line endings.

A simple fix appears to be to set binmode(STDIN ':crlf'); in the tools scripts that do prompting, mostly reverting the impact of binmode in CGI. One subtle difference is that Ctrl-Z EOF is not handled by :crlf layer, but is honored if binmode was not called.

Either that or remove the require CGI from setlib.cfg.
