[Dev] Corrections to new build instructions

The previous message about the new build has a bug in the bottom section where
the instructions about doing full builds are listed.
The BUILD_ROOT environment variable needs to be set.
Here are the corrected steps:

   If you are planning on doing your own full builds, then you need to
   check out Chandler's sources along with the third party systems it
   depends on, and do the full build:
   - cvs co chandler-all
   - cd external
   - export BUILD_ROOT=`pwd`
   - make compilers
   - make expand
   - make
   - make binaries
   - make install
   - cd ../internal
   - make
   - make install
   - cd ../chandler

The instructions are also short on windows/cygwin requirements. On Windows, in
order to do full builds, you do need cygwin installed with at least the
following components:
  make, bash, tar, install, cp, patch, unzip, gzip, gunzip, rm, mkdir, cd, sed
There may be more, part of the problem in figuring out which ones is that it
is safer to install too much cygwin than too little...
