Summary: Windows compilation instructions out of date

Initial Comment:
The instructions on the wiki no longer work for compiling avogadro on windows (example: disabling embed manifest is no longer needed). The instructions and paths are inconsistent throughout (e.g. C:\openbabel\output vs. C:\openbabel\build, C:\avogadro vs. C:\avogadro-git, etc), and an overall rewrite would be a good idea, especially given that few people are familiar with compiling programs on windows.
