The VC8 libraries (CRT, ATL and MFC) will add pragmas that add manifest
entries (Windows XP side-by-side DLL installs) for that library by
default. VC8 will then use that information to embed the manifest into
the executable. _CRT_NOFORCE_MANIFEST prevents these manifests being
automatically added.

NOTE: I currently have VC8 beta 2 (looking to upgrade shortly), and that
uses _STL_NOFORCE_MANIFEST (see the use_ansi.h header file).
