Sorry for not being clear. I meant using platform dependend stuff like
sockets and other headers which are not available on windoze platform in
the same way as it is on Unix.

In the above statement, I meant the porting issue (in writing it in
Elisp) and not the compilation part of GNU Emacs. I would like to know if
there is anyone who has succeeded in building all the sources in
"lib-src" folder and user "server.el" on a windoze platform (not using
the cygwin layer).
