Supposedly, if you have the patience, you can compile cold on win32.  You 
need access to a unix box first, to build the win32 source files.  All 
you need to do is get into a unix shell, type make win32, tar up the 
resulting source files, then attempt compile/configuration in NT.  I 
tried this once on an NT 4 beta box, with GNUwin32 gcc, but it failed 
part way through.  I would imagine if you know your way around C well
enough (I know basics, but most is over my head) you could kludge your 
way through it all.  If you try it and have success, please let me know.
