Regression since 1.4.0p37 and 1.5.0

On some older Windows Systems and on Systems without a VC++ Runtime Library 2008 (or newer) installed, the cmk-update-agent.exe may crash, showing an error like Error loading Python DLL.

We intend to ship a correct version of the needed runtime library within the executable, but this mechanism got broken, caused by a sublte change in our build system.

With this werk, the correct DLLs get packaged within the executable and cmk-update-agent.exe will work again as intended on affected systems.
