#3867 win/README needs an update

obsolete: 8.5b3
Don Porter

dgp From tcl/win/README: "The information in this file is maintained on the web at:

The above URL includes a lengthy discussion of compiler macros necessary
when compiling Tcl extensions that will be dynamically loaded.
dgp Anyone know what that's about, and what update is suitable?
dgp The "Building Tcl Extensions For Windows" link appears to have gone away.

and just generally someone more knowledgable
about Tcl on Windows than me should read
the file and correct things that just ain't so.

    two remarks:

    1) "Be aware that gcc will generate lots of compile time warnings" (I don't get any)
    2) "or in the directory containing tclsh84.exe" (should be tclsh85.exe)
