Emacs build on Windows: Prerequisites

I have been building emacs on windows so far with no issues as I had
all the required executables in place.
I had to move to a new machine and realized that I did not have some
of the UNIX shell utilities (ex: cp, rm..) on my windows box.
Why should Emacs build on windows need those tools? Why can't it use
the windows equivalents? This will make it easier for me to build. Is
there any particular reason to make the availability of the UNIX
commands mandatory?

with best regards,
