Win32 port

Ralf Habacker had asked for CVS access in fd.o bugzilla so he could do a
Win32 branch.  I asked him to go through the patch process instead.  Not
sure if you saw the reply Ralf.  We don't really want to branch for
this.  It should all happen in HEAD with each patch being looked at to
make sure it doesn't change the API or ABI unless it really needs to.
I'm afraid of a whole bunch of work being done, only to find out we
can't apply it.

Steps here are to get a initial patch in that enables dbus to at least
build on Win32 and get all the Win32 hackers working on the same
codebase and sending patches to the list.
