#326 MinGW 5.1.3 updater: Preserve mingw32-make tarball

When updating MinGW, and selecting mingw32-make for install, I noticed the tarball was being deleted from the installation directory. Other tarballs (like g++) were kept.

As I found out, after unpacking, the installer tries to clean up by removing files named mingw*.* from the installation directory. Sadly, the mingw32-make tarball fits that description...

A solution is to restrict the deletion to files named mingw*.ini and mingw*.exe .

Regards,
Cesar
