WinRT: compiled the d3d11 renderer's shaders into SDL itself

Previously, the shaders would get compiled separately, the output of which would need to be packaged into the app. This change should make SDL's dll be the only binary needed to include SDL in a WinRT app.

The best way to learn how to use SDL is to check out the header files in
slouken@7222
    27
the "include" subdirectory and the programs in the "test" subdirectory.
slouken@7222
    28
The header files and test programs are well commented and always up to date.
