Windows SDK is not found

I have recently removed from oowintool two checks that were looking for
a particular versions of SDK. The reason was that 1) if the SDK is not
registered with visual studio, our vsbuild.exe built external libraries
have problem and 2) The 6.1 that oowintool was looking for has the habit
to leave lingering registry keys even after being uninstalled, so it is
creating a mighty mess when the registry key points to something that is
actually not there.

oowintool looks now for the default SDK and if it does not find it, it
will fail. Better at the configure time then later in the build with
cryptic errors.
