Do you mean using Cygwin and/or Mingw32? Or do you mean in general using
MSVC++ rather than gcc?

That is not very hard to implement, I have used cccl m4 macros to
implement such wrappers for autotools for MSVC++ before with pretty good
results. Currently the libtool developers are working on out of the box
support for MS VC++ for libtool and autotools, so wrappers like cccl may
not be necessary in the future.

Yeah. That should be easy enough to replace though, using a different
peer implementation. Someone just needs to write them.
