I built GCL and AXIOMsys on Windows recently (last month). It
should still work. How to setup MSYS/MinGW to compile GCL and
Axiom is described here:

Once built, GCL call be called from cygwin if you wish. This
would be necessary for example to build the parts of Axiom that
depend on pty (like sman) since there is no pty under native

but that seems like a lot of trouble. If you get this to work
