[ODE] ODE wiki, note on compiling in MinGW

There should be no need to make any changes to compile using MinGW,
Your guess is right, sounds like an older AutoMake issue, it should be 1.8.2
or later (I have 1.9.6) and autoconf  should be 2.59, I might have 
compiled those
versions myself, but the latest update packages on the MinGW site should 
do as well
(the standalone automake and autoconf tar.gz files, NOT msysDTK).
