add timestamp to messages in 'build_win' #1367

A couple reasons to add a timestamp:

  1. When submitting to win-builder, package build can sometimes take a while prior to submission and I like having an indication of how long it takes.
  2. I sometimes submit to win-builder and if don't get an email within the 30-60 minutes or I switch tasks while waiting for the email, it's nice to see exactly how long ago the package was submitted.

I like this idea, but I think the timestamp needs to only appear in one place, and I'd prefer something custom created with strftime() + Sys.time(). Maybe "10:30pm (2016-10-11)".

While you're in there, it might be worth updating the time limit. I'm seeing times of more like 15-30 minutes lately.

@hadley good suggestions. I've updated as requested.

Note: there's an unrelated error in the travis checks on R-devel that's causing a failure (#1389), as well as some unrelated errors locally:
