[cairo] Once again... VS.NET

Maybe this help others building under VS.NET....

You need some stdint.h file. Paul Hsieh has a nice one:

Maybe this can be included with the distribution?
Don't know about the license...

Another word on pixman. The mmx-path is a bit to tightly
coupled to gcc imho. For instance VS.NET don't
understand the __include__ keyword. Maybe a little
bit more define-magic is needed here. The
detectCPUFeatures() is also gcc inline assembly...

Building the auxilary libraries like freetype, libpng, and
zlib is no problem, as they come along with some nice
project files.

Would be nice to have an out-of-the-box build in the
next distribution. We don't need project files strictly,
as VS.NET comes with nmake... nmake compatible
makefiles could be a possible solution. Maybe adding
some little batchfiles that first run vcvars32.bat and then
nmake would be enough.

The world is not all gcc :-D
