[Gtkradiant] Compiling ZeroRadiant on Windows 7

  MSVC8 is Microsoft Visual Studio (Express) 2008 (for C++). I believe 
the 2010 version would just introduce new problems but I haven't tried yet.

GTK has a precompiled windows library but it's not recommended for MSVC 
 > 6.0 (unless you know what you're doing, which I don't), I'm not sure 
why that is so. There's multiple GTK Parts (pango, cairo and what not) 
and I don't even know which of them are required.

I've still got parts of some ancient compiling environment that used to 
work once and its contents are:

    * gtk2 (atk, cairo, glib, gtk, gtkglext, libpng, pango)
    * libjpeg (both version 6b and 7 though I guess only one of them is
      actually used)
    * libxml
    * mhash
    * STLport (appearently MSVS's STL is insufficient?)

Looking at the ZeroRadiant Trac page 
<http://www.qeradiant.com/cgi-bin/trac.cgi/wiki/ZeroRadiant> I believe I 
got those from 
http://zerowing.idsoftware.com/files/radiant/developer/1.6.1/ (the deps 
zip file).

We should write down some kind of tutorial for compiling on Windows as 
we figure this out, how to set the dependencies up etc. We could use 
Google Documents:

Or we could just update the dependency package, but I feel some kind of 
guide would be nice nonetheless.
