[FFmpeg-devel] Create .lib static libraries on Windows instead of .a libraries (using MSVC compiler)

Building the static ffmpeg library using vcpkg is currently broken [1][2].
This is mainly due to the fact that the built static libraries are .a files
with lib prefixes.

The attached patch sets the lib prefix to "" and the lib suffix to ".lib".

Tested by building ffmpeg using vcpkg and Visual Studio 2017 Community
Edition on Windows 10.
The resulted libraries link correctly to my application.
