 No it's not possible that those sources compiles on windows, because some includes
needs to be surrounded by #ifndef MSW #endif,
some libraries doesn't exist at all on windows, whatever the build system we use.
 I'll give a try when I got time to modify sources and see what happen...

I'm particulary interested into using pd-l2ork for some projects where I need to compute
data with an higher precision than 32bit floats, for some reasons this is happening on win64, not on linux,
because of hardware compatibility problems.
