[pypy-issue] [issue984] 'make' can be 'mingw32-make' on MinGW platform

New submission from Chris Morgan <me at chrismorgan.info>:

On Windows when building with MinGW, the make command will sometimes be named
`mingw32-make.exe` instead of `make.exe`. This patch makes a check on the PATH
for mingw32-make first, and overrides make_cmd if it is there.

If this is considered a performance problem, the check could be delayed by
putting it in MingwPlatform.__init__.
