Bugs: MESOS-6720

Repository: mesos


Before building Mesos on a Windows machine, it is necessary to set
`%PreferredToolArchitecture%` to the value `x64`. This is necessary to
work around (at least) two bugs in the MSVC backend: in particular, the
linker can sometimes take hours or days to link `mesos-x.x.x.lib`, and
the build system occasionally finds it self spuriously unable to find
file `mesos-x.x.x.lib` to link against.

These issues are well-known and documented (e.g., in the official Mesos
"getting started" document), but it is better to simply refuse to build
Mesos at all on Windows unless that environment variable is set.

This commit will introduce such a check.
