The easiest way for you to get this to work, is to tell users to
create a POSIX-like environment where programs can create executables
in the traditional way.  I suppose you could port Autoconf to the
non-POSIX environment you're talking about, but it'd be some work
and I don't know of anybody else who's done anything else like that.
