SZIP compatibility

Libaec includes a free drop-in replacement for the SZIP library. Just replace SZIP's shared library* with* and* from libaec.

For Windows the DLLs are called SZIP.DLL and AEC.DLL. Code which is dynamically linked with SZIP such as HDF5 should continue to work with libaec. No re-compilation required!

HDF5 files which contain SZIP encoded data can be decoded by HDF5 using libaec and vice versa.
