I would better use SCons for both unix and windows builds. In case of
windows for both compilers - mingw and microsoft ones. To port curses
extension to windows I need to know what gcc options mean, what are
the rules to write Makefiles and how to repeat these rules as well as
find options in visual studio interface. Not mentioning various
platform-specific defines and warning fixes.
