Suggest windows and aws #117
Related to #92, it seems to me that full fledged dependencies on aws and windows is excessive for pure Linux environments.
As suggested by @carmstrong, this change moves from depends to suggests for both aws and windows.
YMMV, but switching to suggests moved my chef setup from failing to compile (even though I cloned down the aws and windows cookbooks), to a working state where I am able to compile and run successfully.
If this patch is accepted, it should resolve #92 as well.

aws and windows are only used by the windows flavor cookbook, and it didn't make sense to force them to be installed by people on other platforms. There was also a recent issue with the windows cookbook that caused a circular dependency (I think with the powershell cookbook) which caused even more frustration for java cookbook users.
The spec tests need to be completely rewritten: #128
