I think you're in for some rather extensive porting. Most of the freely
available keyserver packages were initially developed & hosted on *nix
platforms. And while some of the tools required (gcc, awk, Ruby, OCaml,
gdbm, BerkeleyDB) have been ported to Win32, I have not seen nor heard
evidence of full success getting a keyserver ported to Win32.
