Commit: Add default manifest resource for Cygwin & MinGW


Hi Guys,

  I am applying the patch below to add a default manifest in to the
  final links performed by the Cygwin and MinGW targets.  The manifest
  is necessary in order for the linked binaries to be executed in a
  Windows 8 environment.

  The manifest is added using a linker script so that this feature will
  be compiler-neutral.  The resource merging code in the linker means
  that if an application provides its own manifest then the default
  manifest will be ignored.

Cheers
  Nick
