Clarify paragraph about compatibility between image libraries and builds of

Emacs with several compilers.

Binaries for the image libraries (among many others) can be found at
GnuWin32 (http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net). These are built with
MinGW and work better with GCC/MinGW builds of Emacs, like the
official binary tarballs for Windows. Compatibility with MSVC is
still weak and should not be trusted in production environments; if
you really need an MSVC-compiled Emacs with image support, you should
try to build the required libraries with the same compiler (though it
can be extremely non-trivial, and we'll be interested on hearing of
any such effort).
