Building Lua core with mingw is straightforward - there is a makefile
supplied with the sources. Mingw is easy to install - just download
the relevant .tar.gz files (there are about 4 of them), extract to a

I've built a whole series of modules using mingw. Generally, they
weren't hard to do. I'll see if I can tidy up my script and post the
relevant bits here.
