Tom and I spoke further on Friday afternoon.  Tom would prefer
that the Windows specific build number not be included in
patchlevel.h.   We also identified a need to be able to override
the KRB5_RELTAIL in the KFW releases since we need it to indicate
"kfw-3.1-beta-1" and not "post-release".

Any objections to creating a windows/patchlevel.h file that
would be used for these purposes?
