Building the tools on Windows is still slow(ish) because the POSIX
emulation layer is being used. The build systems the tools use have lots
of shell execs for tests and other things and this slows things down.
The MinGW64 tools we build do not suffer from this and when combined
with a native Windows build system tool like waf or cmake you get nice
fast application builds.
