For the release build, there is a flag that can be
passed to mingw so that it does not open that 'dos box'
along with the main window. I don't remember off the
top of my head what it is though. It should be applied
though when we do the release, as closing it kills the
game as well.

While we're at it, might as well build optomized rather
than debug for releases as well.

    - Reuben adjusted the jamfile.mingw to include the
    library flag -mwindows
    to allow the program to be run as a MS Windows app
    without having to run
    through the MS Windows CLI. This prevents the DOS
    Prompt box from
    openning in the background during runtime.
