The latest builds of ANGLE in WebKit require a version of flex that is newer
than what GnuWin32 can provide. The only distribution I've found that doesn't
pull in all of CygWin is winflexbison.

This patch adds the binary of it along with a README explaining the purpose
of this gnuwin32 directory altogether.
