Yes. Instructions for building Axiom from source on Windows
are here:

Standalone GCL is not part of the Windows binary distribution of
Axiom. The distribution only includes AXIOMsys plus just the bare
minimum of MinGW/GCC necessary to compile Axiom library code.

After installing the full build environment on Windows as
described on the web page mentioned above, porting Lisp, C and
Assembler code into the Windows version of Axiom should be quite
easy - provided of course that it does not depend on any linux
specific operating system features such as X-windows, pipes,
forks, ... etc.

As Tim said, if you want help, the best place to ask is right
here on the Axiom developer email list. :)

I am anxious to know more about what Xin Li is working on and
I hope to see his contributions on the Axiom web site!
