Branches: main, 11.01

 	Remove stuff required for supporting Windows 98.  We now require
 	the use of at least Windows XP.

 	Don't export environment changes beyond this file.

 	Delete some comments about Cygwin being required -- they don't
 	belong here and the requirement for a Unix-like environment
 	for building Mercury is covered elsewhere.
