[ft] Windows build

I've successfully compiled freetype on Windows 10 within a Cygnus environment, 
creating an archive lib and then building the demos from that. When I execute 
ftview.exe, frinit.c/grInitDevices()/chain is null, causing grNewSurface() to 
return null, and generating the "could not allocate display surface" error 

I thought using Cygwin might a problem, so I compiled a DLL in Visual Studio 
and created a new solution specifically for ftview.c. Once I got that compiled 
outside of Cygwin, I get the same failure mode.

If possible, could someone provide me with a best known method to build 
freetype and the demos correctly on Windows?

Many Thanks in Advance,
