Basic Windows build instructions, using MinGW:
	Install MinGW and the MSYS Developer Tool Kit (
		* Make sure you have mstcpip.h in MinGW\include
	If using MinGW-w64, install pthreads-w64

Usage instructions:  Run "minerd --help" to see options.

Connecting through a proxy:  Use the --proxy option.
To use a SOCKS proxy, add a socks4:// or socks5:// prefix to the proxy string.
If no protocol is specified, the proxy is assumed to be a HTTP proxy.
When the --proxy option is not used, the program honors the http_proxy
environment variable.  In this case, however, libcurl 7.21.7 or newer is
needed to handle protocol prefixes.
