FS#12258 - Do not use -ffunction-sections -fdata-sections for mingw builds

The attached patch changes the makefiles for plugins, codeclibs and codecs/lib/tlsf to not use ‘-ffunction-sections’ and ‘-fdata-sections’ for simulator builds. This removes several warnings when compiling in my environment (Ubuntu + mingw32).

This needs a review, I am not sure whether I am detecting simulator builds 100% right via “ifdef APP_TYPE”.

Submitted with r30468.

The new version checks whether a mingw cross compiler is used. In this case '-ffunction-sections' and '-fdata-sections' is not used.

'-ffunction-sections' and '-fdata-sections' should be not used for cygwin as well. Therefor check for "sdl-sim".
