[quake2] compile icculus for windows

There is windows code in the archive.  Its possible that it will 
compile.  I don't think anyone has tried for a long long time...

I think a lot of the different projects have different goals.  Making 
Quake2 look like Doom3 for example.  My goal in the icculus port is to 
make quake2 as playable and secure on linux as possible.    Much of 
this is linux specific (e.g. sound, mouse, joystick, OpenGL ...) and 
thus of little interest to the windows folks.

There's no reason why there isn't more "togetherness" its simply that 
no one has ever expressed much interest.  I've certainly taken security 
fixes and what not from the various windows source bases and 
incorporated them into the icculus source.

If you (or anyone) get the source to compile for windows please let me 
know and feel free to send a patch if you needed to make any changes.
