 eliminates the need for the installer to set GRASS_FONT_CAP, as the
 default of $GISBASE/etc/fontcap will work).

 i've tested g.mkfontcap with grass65 running outside a grass-session. it's
 working, fontcap is built.

 I attach a patch for the NSIS-installer script to write a little cmd-file
 to set all dependecies and then run g.mkfontcap outside a grass session.

 the cmd is working by right click with "run as admin" on
 C:\Program Files\GRASS-65-SVN\etc\install_run_gmkfontcap.cmd
 but if it's started by the installer itself, there seems that
 install_run_gmkfontcap.cmd isn't allowed to write fontcap in C:\Program
