Fix and improve Windows/MinGW/MSYS build

 - Makefile: Use $(OS_ARCH) to add some MinGW-specific workarounds and
   settings, so that a simple "make" is sufficient on MinGW (instead of
   manual Makefile hacking).

 - Explicitly set CC=gcc in the Makefile, otherwise you get an error like
   "cc: command not found" on MinGW.

 - MinGW doesn't have ffs(), use gcc's __builtin_ffs() instead.

 - Add /usr/local/include and /usr/local/lib to CPPFLAGS/LDFLAGS, that's
   where libusb-win32 and libftdi stuff is usually placed on MinGW/MSYS.

 - Disable serprog (no sockets) and all PCI-based programmers (no libpci)
   for now. That leaves dummy, ft2232_spi, and buspirate_spi enabled on
   MinGW per default.

 - serial.c: Use correct type for 'tmp', both on Windows/MinGW (DWORD)
   and POSIX (ssize_t).
