...but deken does not have it for 64bit Windows it seems. I never seem to
have the right installation ;(
Looking at the git (
there sem to be a lot of libraries involved. The makefile has:

define forWindows
ldlibs += -lpthread -lm -lwldap32 -lgnutls -lhogweed -lgmp -lssl -lnettle \
-lssh2 -lgcrypt -lgpg-error -lcrypto -lws2_32 -lgdi32 -lcrypt32 \
-lz -lunistring -lidn -lintl -liconv

It does look easier to just use Python for that stuff and let Pd do what
it's good at.
