msvc build

Issue #100 new
Former user created an issue

Would it be possible to have a binary windows version to download, including zlib, freetype, etc.?

Compiling it all by oneself takes forever, because their make processes are all differently organized, and the explanations for msvc aren´t very clear in all of them.

    Our dependency repository is based on the precompiled binaries provided with the PHP SDK, which are built with msvc and should be identical. If you have a script that can produce them from /winlibs/ that would be great.

    We've each put dozens of hours into coaxing cmake to build libgd on windows; no success. Many libraries also tend to version their complete windows Makefiles, which I think is a great idea. cmake is rarely backwards-compatible on windows - when a release actually happens to run there.

    For our work, we do need continuous integration, so unless compilation can be completely scripted on a fresh VM - it's not really usable.

    I plan on refactoring our build/test scripts a bit more before I submit a pull request. Has anyone started a travis-ci configuration? It would be great to get a matrix going so breaking commits can be caught faster.
