Configuring for the cfrontend build on Mingw

Hello, Greg.

3. One potential point of control is the INCLUDES variable found in
INCLUDES = -I. -I$(@D) -I$(srcdir) -I$(srcdir)/$(@D) \
     -I$(srcdir)/../include @INCINTL@

Just unpack mingw32's headers & libs (w32api && mingw-runtime) into
prefix directory. And configure script should find them.

4. It is worth mentioning that there is a subtle interaction with (my
particular version of) make. In some cases make should be replacing $(@D)
with '.', but instead replaces it with '' (nothing). You end up with
   ... -I. -I -Isome/src/path -I/some/src/path/ ...

Yes. This is one of the biggest problem with make taken from msys.
