Greetings Anton

For MSVC-8.0 builds of the standard library within the RCB 
infrastructure used by SourcePro, we utilize the 
-D_CRT_SECURE_NO_DEPRECATE compiler flag.  There were several 
discussions regarding these warnings when we added support for MSVC-8.0, 
and the concensus was to go the route of adding the flag to the compile
