We were talking just an Emacs port and I have to say I find it
surprising that you snipped my reference to mingw32 in order to make
your point.  Emacs compiles with mingw32 and then should not exhibit
the multitude of idiosyncrasies the original poster encountered.

While the mingw32 might not be a "comparable effort", I find it
laudable that they don't go to such lengths of making the environment
seem what it isn't.  In short, I consider the decidedly smaller effort
a good design decision.
