    Provide way to build using existing C compiler on Windows. · fda094d0

    Summary:
    There are various distros that build GHC using their own C compilers
    such as MSYS2. Currently they have to patch the build scripts everytime.
    
    This patch provides the configure argument `--enable-distro-toolchain`
    which allows one to build using any C compiler on the path.
    
    This is also useful for testing new versions of GCC.
    
    Test Plan:
    ./configure --enable-distro-toolchain && make - && make THREADS=9 test
    ./validate
