Well, 80% of the user base of LuaJIT is using Windows and so far
nobody ever reported a problem compiling it. :-)

For mingw you just use "make mingw" from the top level. For MSVC
you need to open a "Visual Studio Command Prompt" window, cd to
the etc directory of LuaJIT and run luavs.bat. All of this is
described in jitdoc/luajit_install.html of course.

If this doesn't work for you (be sure to use the latest version)
then please indicate the specific problems you're encountering.
