This patch adds configuration files for Travis and AppVeyor (and should close #1 and #2).

It also includes a small change in dist.ini to make it possible to build the module (6ccd631).

The Travis setup uses the Travis Perl helpers to test versions 5.12 and up, including 5.26 as well as "blead" and "dev" (allowing failures on "blead").

The AppVeyor configuration is mostly copied from that of Alien::Build, which means that it also copies all of its idiosyncrasies (in particular, long lists of packages that need to be installed manually for some reason, etc). Here you can see the results of the latest build of my fork.

It tests Strawberry Perl versions 5.12 and up, including 5.26. All of them are tested on 64 bit, except 5.12.4, which is only available on 32 bit. ActiveState Perl 5.24 (the latest at the time) is also tested.

Acknowledgements go to @plicease and @lancew for their work on the original AppVeyor config.

Add AppVeyor config
This configuration is heavily inspired (read "blatantly copied from") that
used by Alien::Build [1], which has been written by Graham Ollis and Lance
Wicks.

The current configuration is still suitable for improvement by more
seasoned developers, however. In particular, Strawberry Perl versions
5.12.3 to 5.16.3 all fail because they are unable to find the perl
executable they've just installed, which seems to be a particularly stupid
kind of error.
