Fixes #5637

In #5637, when Gtk is imported, the FriBiDi library gets loaded which replaces the shim symbols due to dynamic linking. Trying to load _imagingft then calls load_fribidi which attempts to overwrite its symbols and segfaults. Hiding the symbols prevents them from being replaced by the real library and segfaulting. Hiding is the default with MSVC.

Just want to state here as well that this PR fixes the fribidi-related segfaults that I was having with Pillow 8.3.1.

Looks like it's moments from clearing the last two tests (macOS/pypy) as well.
