CCL should build "out pof the box" on Windows - after all we have been
shipping the Windows version of Axiom based on it for many years.  The
Axiom architecture is different on Unix and Windows and the RPC
dependency you found almost certainly only exists in the Unix build.
The problem may be in generating a correct makefile - there are tools
for doing this (makebase etc) but they may need adapting to take account
of the non-standard Axiom enhancements.
