So things like cairo-ft are not necessary on Windows?  I was thinking
cairo-ft was the main font handling code.  There aren't many comments in the
code to give one an idea of which bits are supposed to work on which
platforms, so I just tried to compile it all at first, and anything that
seemed obviously wrong I removed (like Atsui, e.g.).  Those font files
_almost_ work on Windows with the exception of fontconfig calls, so I just
assumed someone had been sloppy about portability issues there.

Some notes on the patches:

Ah, ok.  I'll admit I was rather slipshod with my mods on the test
programs.  I wasn't really thinking to have those included back in.  For
instance I arbitrarily changed the delay parameter on glitz the test program
to be tenths of seconds rather than whole seconds because I got tired of
waiting 1second for every test.

Yeh, good catch I think that was one of the first files I modified, before I
realized the __inline__ thing was so widespread and before I found there was
an INLINE macro used elsewhere.
