[cairo] static inline C code in VC++

Nice, that's an interesting solution. I'm personally not a big fan of 
putting this kind of stuff in the makefile though because people end 
up spending lots of time looking for defines in the code (and cursing 
Intellisense), until they realize it's buried in the makefile. It 
also doesn't make it obvious what compilation differences exist for 
VC++ VS GCC, while an #ifdef #else #endif block makes it very clear.

Anyways here's my patch for it.
