ALL: Drop dists/msvc71 (and dists/msvc7)
|Reported by:||SF/quietust||Owned by:||fingolfin|
Ever since revision 36087, both graphics\scaler\hq2x.cpp and graphics\scaler\hq3x.cpp completely fail to compile under MSVC71, each reporting one hundred syntax errors (mostly "missing ',' before ';'") followed by a fatal error "error count exceeds 100". Given that these changes are handled correctly by all newer compilers (including MSVC9 and likely MSVC8 as well), it's probably safe to drop support altogether for this outdated compiler. In all likelihood, MSVC70 is also unable to compile these files, so it can be dropped as well.
Additionally, all versions of MSVC have been unable to compile since revision 36007, as all of their project files continue to refer to the now nonexistent backends\saves\compressed\compressed-saves.cpp.
