[vlc-devel] Proposal for Windows binary

  To reduce the windows binary size, I think we should use dlls for some
  libs (the one that we reuse more than once and are big).

  I suggest then:
  - avcodec (used by avcodec and avformat plugins),
  - xml2 (used by fontconfig and freetype and skins2),
  - fontconfig (used by freetype and libass/libasa),
  - freetype (used by skins2 and freetype plugin and libass/libasa) and
  - gcrypt (used by gnutls, core, remoteOSD)

  This is a bit a pain to maintain, but would down-size our vlc*.exe.
  Other stuffs could be done too, but the gain would be minimal.

  xtophe, do you agree?
