No.  At least in my understanding, if you want a package to run on 
Windoze, you have to compile it for Windoze, on Windoze, using compilers 
that are adapted to Windoze.

A feasible approach for you would be to use the win-builder facility.
See the URL:


You would have to be able to

* un-tar the source package
* edit the DESCRIPTION file so as to insert *your* email address
   under "maintainer"
* rebuild the (edited) package

To do this you would probably need to work on a Linux system.

Good luck.
