[2016-08-29] [mspdebug] Makefile: Fix Cygwin build

While beginning a project that utilizes a MSP430 processor, I saw a need to use 'mspdebug' from Windows. The 'mspdebug' tool needed a small patch to the build system. I actually use 'tilib' and TI's shared object at runtime. The patch simply allowed the tool to be built under Cygwin. More work is needed to use libusb-1.0.
