TagLib 1.5 for windows binaries are broken

Hello everyone,

I just wanted to let you know that the binaries for Windows are somewhat 
broken. I had a linker error when trying to pass a LPCWSTR to the 
TagLib::FileRef constructor.
However it's just a matter of preprocessor definition, as the CMake 
configuration define a WIN32, whereas some source files, like tfile.h, 
use __WIN32.

I just added the definition before generating the lib with CMake to make 
it work correctly.
