#29: Cannot build with VS2008 on Windows 7 x64

 Priority:  major                  |  Milestone:
Component:  libwebsockets library  |    Version:
 Keywords:  Windows, x64           |
 Following the instructions for configuring with CMake (all default
 settings except turning off SSL) results in LWS_VISIBLE not being defined,
 which cascades into many compile errors. It appears to boil down to the
 following portion of libwebsockets.h:

 #ifdef WIN32
 #ifdef LWS_DLL
 #define LWS_VISIBLE
 #define LWS_EXTERN extern __declspec(dllexport)
 #define LWS_VISIBLE
 #define LWS_EXTERN extern __declspec(dllimport)

 WIN32 is defined but LWS_DLL is not defined, so LWS_VISIBLE and LWS_EXTERN
 remain undefined.
