#2716 Add cppcheck

Kimmo Varis

This patch adds cppcheck to Externals. cppcheck is a static code check tool. It seems very useful and has already been used to find bugs in other projects.

cppcheck homepage:

Having this kind of tool in our SVN is a good thing:
- it is easy for people to compile and take into use
- we can require people to use it (no additional downloads etc)
- we can automate use of it later?
- it is small so no much overhead

This patch is the 1.24 version of the cppcheck codes + visual studio 2003 project files I created.

    Closing as rejected. We'd better just to document and instruct people do download and run cppcheck. The project is in active development so this would just add too much work to keep up with the development.
