New woe installer

NSIS (Nullsoft Scriptable Install System - http://nsis.sourceforge.net/) is pretty interesting: you can generate a complete .exe installer using a simple script language (so it's unattended), and there's even a Debian GNU/Linux package so you don't even need to have woe (and so you can generate the installer from the freedink.org autobuilder) :)
Plus it works fine with Wine.

The first version is here, it installs the FreeDink engine, the DFArc front-end, and freedink-data:

Graphics will probably be improved :)

Complete Unix/GCC support is pretty new, so you need version >= 2.42 (in Experimental for Debian).
