RFR (M): Enable OpenJDK builds on Windows with MinGW/MSYS

you're right, I havn't looked at the tests until now - just wanted to
get the build up and running.
My only concerns so far are the few tests which require a Korn Shell
as I think there's no ksh available for MinGW/Msys.
But I promise to look at it.
By the way, has anybody ever successfully run the tests on Windows
with either MKS or Cygwin?
