There is instructions how to build Win32 binaries in the INSTALL file.
However, I tried twice (once at work and once at home) and failed with 
compilation errors. Maybe because of using wrong version of dependencies 
or wrong parameters to the build scripts.
And I havn't had the time to track those errors down to their source.

I have a virtual machine I can use for the build process.
I too would be very happy if DJ could come up with a detailed 
description of his build process.
Then I would gladly take over and build upcoming versions for the community.
