The comment on the change is:
Add notes about windows build support being builtin

+ = Building current couchdb versions =
+ As of couchdb 0.10, support for Windows is included in the standard build process.  View
README in the root of the source tree for information about the dependencies and how to configure
the build process.  In summary, you will need to:
+  * Install the cygwin environment.
+  * Install the MS C compiler.
+  * Install and possibly build a number of pre-requisites, such as curl, icu, seamonkey,
+  * get the sources to erlang and couch
+  * configure and build erlang according to the instructions.
+  * configure and build couch according to the README file in couch
+ After executing 'make install', you will find a couchdb directory structure inside your
erlang directory - that is, the couch build process simply installs its libraries into the
erlang binaries you previously build.  This directory structure should be ready to roll -
it can be zipped up, packaged by an installer, etc.
+ = Older instructions =
+ These instructions are for couch versions pre 0.10
  There is a ["Windows binary installer"] in "beta testing". See the wiki page for it for
more instructions.
