[HarfBuzz] Problem with strtof() (in src/hb-common.cc)

Hi guys,

When building from git master this morning (with MSVC) I noticed a minor 
problem in harfbuzz, src/hb-common.cc (at line 670):-

       v = strtof (p, &pend);

For MSVC users, 'strtof()' didn't get introduced until VS2013. Prior to 
that, the nearest that MSVC offered was 'strtod()'.  Could we maybe 
change the above line to this..?

       v = (float) strtod (p, &pend);

Best regards,

John Emmas
