[freetds] Building as a DLL on Windows

I tend to agree, it is pretty much guaranteed to be a compiler bug, but
fixing compilers is outside the scope of my current project :-)
I find that the first time I build after a clean, it fails, and if I build
again it succeeds. I'm not sure if this is actually an error, as it is
possible there is a broken object file produced from the failed build that
satisfies the time stamps...
I will have to look into the cmake option, my nmakefile is working quite
well, though.
