Thanks for the clarification. Given what you say, I don't see any way
that I can offer a solution you'd be willing to accept - I suspect the
only viable option for you would be support for cross-compilation
using mingw/ggg, which I'm not able to offer. For now, I guess, that
simply means I'll have to consider you (and anyone else for whom even
running a Windows system is unacceptable) outside of my target
audience.
