Added OpenAL and SDL Windows dependency DLLs to mirrors #3281
This fixes https://github.com/OpenRA/OpenRA/wiki/FAQ#the-downloads-during-windows-installation-and-first-game-start-dont-work as it is a common annoyance that the SDL/OpenAL webserver went down when somebody tried to run the OpenRA Setup.exe only this time it happened during the first minutes after the stable release announcement when I tried to prepare the patch for Desura which required a clean install so I noticed when a file got removed in my proposed patch there and could help people immediately. http://www.libsdl.org/ was online again after a short while so this is not urgent.
I wondered why it left a broken game in my case. Usually it will fail and clean up everything that is already installed. Someone on Desura commented that it is braindead to not bundle the dependencies and download them live as this is very likely to break. My attempt to fix this will use the same NSIS macro everywhere (which seems to retry and abort/clean) and use the OpenRA mirror system which is in our control.
