The attached patch fixes the compiler options used for building the x64 platform.

- In VC10 the passing /GS- as an additional option has been replaced by the MSBuild BufferSecurityCheck command
- The /USECL:xxx option is only for the VSExtComp plugin for VS.NET 2003 (VC7.1) used to build a 64-bit Python 2.5

The attached patch modifies the x64 properties for VS8/9/10.

I did forgot t mention that this change also silences a compiler warning:

cl : Command line warning D9025: overriding '/GS' with '/GS-'

The /USECL:xxx option does not provoke a warning is it is being
evaluated as '/U "SECL:xxx"' (undefine macro)

Adding Victor Stinner as he has been quite active in fixing Windows 64-bit issues.

Just to note that, as it stands, these wrongly assigned options account for 28 of the 216 warnings (or 13%) currently emitted.  This is just one easy step towards a warning-free 64-bit Windows build.

It would be nice to get Win64 to be one of the warning-free platforms (see msg63893 of issue1616).

Retargetted patch against current tip. If no-one objects I'll commit this in the next day or two.
