You will find lots of support for that on address@hidden

I suggest to start with the current development trunk of Emacs.  When
you clone the trunk, read the file nt/INSTALL first, it includes
description of the tools (MSYS and MinGW) you need to install to have
an environment, and then you just do the usual Unix configure && make
thing.
