If you ac_cv_ it, yes.  But never display a cache variable to the
user.

You macro, indeed, is fragile to the changes of LANG.  I'm not sure

AC_PROG_CC_WIN32
AC_LANG(C++)
AC_LANG(C)
echo $ac_compile

will display what you hope it would.  And actually, now that coffee
suddenly breaks my mind free, I just understood you meant to do here:

ac_cc_win32=yes
ac_compile="$ac_compile -mwin32"
ac_link="$ac_link -mwin32"
CC="$CC -mwin32"

this is `wrong'.  ac_compile and friends are not evaluated at their
definition, but at their uses.  So you need not (and must not) change
them at all.  Changing CC is a bad idea.  And BTW, my suggestion
behind the C++ stuff was that, IMHO, you should not set CC, or maybe
at least provide the user with a means to get the switch, say the
variable $WIN32CFLAGS.

AC_LANG_COMPILER_MWIN32([YES-WIN32], [NOT-WIN32])

I would be able to write

AC_LANG_COMPILER_MWIN32([CC="$CC $WIN32CFLAGS])
CXX="$CXX $WIN32CFLAGS"
