Build libgcrypt few minutes ago using MinGW-w64 on windows.
libmicrohttpd was build fine with libgcrypt on Win32.
Autoconf is not Unix-only. It's targeted to "Unix-like systems" according to
That's why it's important to be platform-agnostic as much as possible. Unix-like != UNIX, host tools can be different.
