    This is kind of a bass ackwards way of doing it, but you could try and compile it via mingw using wine?
    If any part of my post is incorrect, please correct me.

    This post is not guarantied to be correct, and is not to be taken as a matter of fact, but of opinion or a guess, unless otherwise noted.

    if you set up the app and makefile for it, you can build a windows gui app with gcc by doing a cross-compile.
