[libnice] Compiling on Windows

try to follow these rules:
1. download libnice 0.1.7 zip
2. download dependencies from 
3. add inttypes.h to the project (download from 
https://code.google.com/p/msinttypes/ and put the files in the same dir 
of sln)
3. substitute all inline declaration into __inline
5. fix the bug inside win32_common.h (ssize_t must be signed long not 
unsigned long)
6. I'm using binaries dll downloaded from gstreamer project (version 
1.3.90 http://gstreamer.freedesktop.org/data/pkg/windows/)

In my tests libnice seems a bit unstable inside gathering-done callback 
when used with an external turn server and a lot of connections (some 
hundred), but I'm not sure, because the behaviour is quite random and is 
not reproducible in debug. Maybe it is related to multithreading.
If I use libnice without turn, it seems totally stable also with a lot 
of connections.
I'm investigating this aspect.

I hope it helps
