Fix readme to instruct building with the build script instead
Also, on Windows the build script adds the gnuwin32\bin directory, so we don't need that part in the readme Change-Id: I36ac9ebef9ce8b74fa75f63be7243bb334512a32

For MinGW (gcc version 4.6 or later), ensure that the compiler can
be found in the path.
+ The build script will use jom if it's found in the path, which means you can
+ use -j <n> options on Windows as well. If not, the /MP option is added to the
+ compile options of the Microsoft Visual Studio compiler, to use all available
+ cores for batch building.
More details follow.
