[Vm-dev] Freetype plugin on windows

Built it ok as external plugin, since in sources there is already a
prebuilt library (freetype.a).
The problem however is that VM crashing once you attempting to use it.

I think i will do the same as for macs, and build library from
scratch, because there is no clue, what version of freetype was used
to build freetype.a
and most probably it was compiled using pretty old compiler (2.95)
which is used for years to build squeak vms.
So, a reason of failure could be that it simply doesn't fit well with
msys compiler which used to build cog.

For curious, i attaching crash log.

Best regards,
Igor Stasenko AKA sig.
