Hi Tamas,

I fixed many of those C99 issues about a year ago, and I recently 
noticed also that there is more code in MapCache now with those same 
issues.  I also reported another issue with MSVC here in January, but I 
haven't tackled it yet (timegm)...so I've been doing MS4W builds with 
older MapCache releases (1.2.0 i think) as those fixes I made allow it 
to build in MSVC.
