Alright, these are now in my (win32/vc)-specific cairo-features.h, and
I have removed them from the .vcproj. Less hidden pre-processor shite.

Done. And I have also changed a few #ifdefs to #ifs :)

Yeah.... There is also a bigger question here - external dependencies.
Say, png stuff depends on libpng and zlib that are available with
.vcproj-ects. So, a developer can easily get them, while some pdf/ps
dependencies are no that easy of obtain.

Anyway, here is patch3.
