MinGW-w64 driver support

Currently, MinGW(-w64), more specifically, these targets:

use the Generic_GCC Driver code, which uses a substandard directory search.

Attached is a patch that introduces a new ToolChain, MinGWToolChain, that
provides the necessary MinGW-w64 search paths and libraries.

Currently, this links in libgcc/libstdc++, and there is a small snippet of code
that implements cross GCC version detection through its library directory. I
cannot inherit the Generic_GCC version, because this would add unwanted search
directories that could conflict with the cross-compilation. InitHeaderSearch
was also adapted to this end.

Currently the patch does not cater for MinGW.org, but this can be added if I
know the search paths. I have tested this on Arch Linux with its mingw-w64-gcc
packages, and on Windows with my toolchains.
I have no idea how to write a test for this though, and looking at the existing
tests has made me none the wiser.

I believe that instead of calling collect2, one could directly call ld,
removing another GCC dependency.

The only issue I have run into is when creating a DLL (entry point
DllMainCRTStartup not found). It seems the wrong *crt*.o objects are used
(there are those by MinGW-w64 and those from GCC) I know too little of this
that I invite someone else to investigate this. Also, first creating an *.o
file, and then linking removes the warning.
