Update Windows install notes for build options #4545
There are notes for building for Windows in a couple of places:
Each place lists what I think may be an incomplete set of definitions for customizing the build. Trawling through a few headers, it looks like a more complete list of options (for non-special cases) might be something like this:
It would be nice to have at least the two aforementioned docs updated with supported options.
There are even more
A more comprehensive, better documented list would be fantastic. I mentioned Windows because the existing documentation refers to some of these, and because mechanisms for customizing the build for Windows are more limited, thus it's of even greater importance that a Windows developer has a comprehensive list. However, I agree that a centralized reference would be ideal, and then perhaps the Windows build notes/docs can simply point there.
The disable-scan script used in test 1165 is extended to also verify that the docs cover all used defines and all defines offered by configure. Reported-by: SLDiggie on github Fixes #4545
