Installer: install rolls back on systems without MFC installed, even with MSMs

I believe that this is because the MSMs are not yet fully installed when the custom actions need them. One approach is to run the custom actions deferred, but at that point they no longer have the installation path available to them. Another approach is to static-link MFC into the custom action DLLs.

I've attached a patch which I believe accomplishes the latter, and allows an install to complete on a clean Windows 2003 machine. It would be great if someone else could test this...

By applying this patch and then removing the code that adds the MFC MSM (leaving the CRT MSM in place), I was able to get installers to work correctly on clean machines, and also remove about 10Mb from the installer.

I think the MFC install may have been conflicting with the CRT install, because before I removed the MFC MSM I had to manually install the VC2008 SP1 runtime to get the server service to start.

The NSIS-driven bootstrapper package in r3748 should fix this
