You need a POSIX ennvironment to build GnuPG for Windows.  Thsi is
usually done by cross-compiling it but it might be possible to do this
with a Cygwin32 environemnt under Windows and using the mingw32/cpd
kit - this is not the same you can download from  See
doc/README/W32 for details on how to build GnuPG for Windows.

I don't think that the development branch will build cleanly.  We are
going to fix this when we start to prepare a new stable branch.
