[Dev-luatex] cross-compiling: CONFHOST setting

Hi Taco,

While trying to cross-compile luatex from linux to win32 using mingw, I got a 
failure due to the --host setting not matching what is installed on my machine. 
I changed that in build.sh and got a second, but less serious error, about 
mingw32-strip no being found.

I suggest the attached patch to build.sh to make cross-compilation more 
configurable. Hopefully, ./build.sh --mingw will continue to work were it used 
to, but the platforms will also be configurable with, eg

./build.sh --mingw --host=i586-mingw32msvc --build=x84_64-linux-gnu

This command line works on my platform, but I couldn't test if just --mingw 
still works elsewhere, so you may want to test that on your machine.
