If I had a working build system for Emacs, I would love to do this.  I
have cygwin (full), Strawberry Perl (which should come with working
mingw, I presume), and MSKLC (which comes with some old MS C
compiler).

I will try to compile it, but a presence of somebody who would hold my
hands if/when something does not work would not hurt.  (I never
managed any C project on Windows.)
