[ODE] Library linkage problems (Windows).

The static library build of ODE links against some version of MSVCRT.dll 
(it's unclear which). This is a problem if you want to use that version 
with any other version of MSVC, and it's also a problem if you want to 
create a statically linked program that has no specific runtime 
requirements (MSVC 2005 SP1 runtime isn't particularly widespread, for 

We need to do two things:
1) Build a number of ode.lib static libs, with different versions of 
MSVC (7.1sp2, and 8.0sp1 at a minimum) and mark each as such.
2) Make sure that static link versions of ODE are built against the 
static runtime libraries, not the DLL runtime libraries.
