Colorize Windows mach builds

It's often hard to write cross-platform code for console coloring, and for mach there have not been exceptions.  It colorizes build and tests output, so that you can easily scroll and find warnings and failures, but unfortunately only on Unix consoles.

We are not new to this kind of issues in the Windows build environment, and there's a bug filed to properly support that, though, in the meanwhile, we can apply the same trick used with pymake to get colorization on mach.  Kudos to Shawn Wilsher and Justing Dolske for first implementing this idea with pymake, now let's also colorize our mach build!
