I have cleaned up the scripts in mswindows\osgeo4w directory. There
are still some open issues, anyway (stand-alone installer) packaging
should work now.

The original osgeo4w package puts these files into `c:\osgeo4w\bin`
(btw including some extra tmpl files, which is not needed). I can't
see any good point why to create some extra directory which is
moreover not included in the path by default. So I would suggest to
forget about `c:\osgeo4w\apps\grass\bin`.

@jef: I understand that you prefer to find someone from the GRASS
community to do GRASS packaging for osgeo4w. Because nobody has taken
this job after your ask for that more times in the past I can offer
you myself for this position.
