[FFmpeg-devel] [MSVC toolchain] Patch to allow building FFmpeg with Linux bash on Windows (WSL)

The attached patch changes the configure script for FFmpeg (and associated
shell scripts) to call MSVC tools including their extensions (cl.exe instead
of cl for example). This is necessary, because WSL can automatically launch
Windows processes from the Linux side but only if the process is in the path
and includes the full name. Linux doesn't automatically append .exe and such
to invoke a file.
