Bug 653841: Update README.win32 and VS README.txt's

This relates to my previous commit titled "add a script to generator
files for building" on behalf of Shixin Zeng.

Tell people about the availability of a python script to create the
necessary files for a Visual C++ build from a GIT checkout.

This is done with the courtesy of Shixin Zeng's python script which does
the job and eliminates the troubles of getting a suitable shell environment
to do the "make dist" job (which is especially not easy on Windows itself!)

This VS10 solution and the projects it includes are intented to be used
in a GLib source tree unpacked from a tarball. In a git checkout you
first need to use some Unix-like environment or manual work to expand
the .in files needed, mainly config.h.win32.in into config.h.win32 and
glibconfig.h.win32.in into glibconfig.h.win32. You will also need to
expand the .vcprojin files here into .vcproj files.
