Yes - that's why Cygwin is a good choice for your Windoze compiler - the
compiler comes with all the GNU tools - so your configure script and Makefile.am's
can be shared with the Linux version.

There was some attempt by one of the guys on the FlightGear team to write
a Makefile-to-MSVC-project converter.  I recollect that it worked reasonably
well - but I don't think it was ever completed.

We had a lot of problems with #include directives having to be changed
to fit with Apple's weird directory heirarchy.  The code itself ported
without too many problems though.
