This fixes the stat() issue on Windows XP/2K3 by allowing sbbs to benefit from the run-time library updates that Microsoft releases periodically (like https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=53840). For more info on the stat() issue which caused all kinds of sbbs errors (e.g. creating directories initially, but a lot more): https://stackoverflow.com/questions/32452777/visual-c-2015-express-stat-not-working-on-windows-xp Since we are using cryptlib which requires the MSVC runtime DLL anyway (it is the default build behavior of MSVC), we weren't really gaining anything from statically linking the CRTL (LIBCMT.LIB). And for some reason, an up-to-date MSVC2019 still has (links-in) a LIBCMT.LIB file that includes this stat bug. All the online help resources I found just to seem to suggest updating the CRTL DLLs (on the target system), with no mention of any fixes available for the static CRTLs on the build system. But with the no gain from static linking anyway, I figured it was time to switch to DLL CRTLs. The debug builds are still statically linking the CRTL for no particular reason.
