[PD-dev] pdfontloader for 0.49

Howdy all,

One important point for 0.49 would be to finish off the cross platform font support started in 0.48. The last bit involves loading the included font on Windows and I wrote a tiny Tcl C extension for this which does not require any external extensions. We simply need to integrate it into the Windows package and load it before loading the fonts. The easiest solution is to add a pre-built pdfontloader to the msw/pdprototype.tgz bin directory. Also, the notes in font/README.tcl could be updated to match.

The code and info on how to make it work are all here: https://github.com/pure-data/pdfontloader <https://github.com/pure-data/pdfontloader>

I don't currently have a Windows install, so maybe Christof can help with this? *hint hint*

We could integrate this small codebase into the msw directory and include it in the build process as well, but that could also be left for later.
