This will make it seem that file Makefile.msvc.names solely belongs to
the build system which lives in the winbuild subdirectory, which is
not the case.

The risk of someone making adjustments in the winbuild subdirectory
and cross-polluting other build systems present in curl's tree, when
they decide it is convenient for them to modify Makefile.msvc.names,
will now exist.

OTOH, I can live with this change. It will simply imply that there's
something else I'll have to keep an eye on.
