Release candidate for 2.0.15

I tried to compile gnupg-2.0.15rc1 under mingw+msys.
Everything worked fine except the compilation of scd/ccid-driver.c
It required two little fixes:
1) ETIMEDOUT is not defined by common windows headers, so libusb-win32 hardcoded this value into its sources. For this reason, it needs to be defined here too.
2) libusb-win32 cannot modify errno, so the error code is returned directly into the return value of various functions.

After doing these fixes gnupg has been compiled successfully.
I still need to test it under cygwin.

Subject : Release candidate for 2.0.15

> Hi!
> I just prepared a release candidate for GnuPG 2.0.15.  The goal of this
> release is to find out whether there are any severe build or runtime
> bugs.  There are actually not may changes:
>  * New command --passwd for GPG.
>  * Fixes a regression in 2.0.14 which prevented unprotection of new
>    or changed gpg-agent passphrases.
>  * Make use of Libassuan 2.0 which is available as a DSO.
> as well as a couple of minor bug fixes and some changes to the German
> translation.
> The major point is the move to Libassuan 2.0.  This is the first version
> of Libassuan which may be used as a shared library.  We took this change
> to cleanup the API a bit with the drawback that some changes to the
> caller are required. 
> To make development with Libassuan easier we need to get rid of
> Libassuan 1 which developer's package can't be installed side by side
> with Libassuan 2.  Thus it is not easy to maintain software written with
> version 1 and 2 at the same time.  With the 2.0.15 release we will have
> finished the migration of the GnuPG related tools to Libassuan 2.
> Please let us know if there are any problems building this release:
