TagLib 1.6 RC1 - Windows Static LIB

In March 2009, I created a Visual Studio 2008 project that would create a
DLL and/or a LIB file.  I honestly haven't tried to compile version 1.6 yet.
As long as nothing has been done to explicitly prevent compiling as a static
library, it should still work.  I will try to find time this week to test
the current build.

I'd be happy to share the VS2008 project with whomever wants it.

This feature was not removed in 1.6, it was not supported in 1.5
either. If you can tell me how did you build static library with 1.5
and what doesn't work with 1.6, I can try to fix it.
