This is really great, it'll make regular Windows releases much easier.  
Want to take a stab at the externals collection also?  Check 
externals/build/win, you can add a MinGW Makefile there, that's where 
the nmake one is.

Once we have one working mingw makefile for the non-flext externals, 
it'll be quite easy to do the rest.
