Yes, you can. I haven't tried it out with windows, but on Linux it works. You
just have to configure make with the option  "--enable-native-objc-exceptions".
(As this is so far not on by default it isn't in the binary release either, so
you have to compile GNUstep yourself, but as windows releases are unfortunally
seldom and thus often out-of-date you probably have to stick to that anyway in
order to work sensibly.)
Just follow the building instructions in the README.MinGW file of the make
package or on the wiki page (in doubt the readme
is more up-to-date) and add the above option to the "./configure" phase of the
make package.
Building by hand on windows is a somewhat lenghty process. But it is mostly
cut-and-paste from the howtos.
I hope this helps you.
