Compiling libpurple in Visual Studio

I have determined that the problem with the linkage type was that the syntax
was incorrect for the VC compiler. placing the linkage inside of the
parentheses fixes this, and does not seem to break the mingw compile
(although this should be tested more). From what I can see, replacing the
strncasecmp's with g_ascii_strncasecmp's should be safe, as these are always
operating on ascii strings. Please correct me if I have overlooked
something. Attached is a new patch.
