 As for 5ffcb3db9398, it should finally be possible to build finch for
 windows (native console app, not cygwin) without any workarounds. The only
 required configure parameter is:

 `./configure --host=i686-w64-mingw32`

 for cross-compilation. You may also provide --prefix and you should set
 PKG_CONFIG and PKG_CONFIG_PATH env variables to properly cross compile.
 You don't have to disable things not supported on win32, as they are
 disabled by default on this OS.

 There is no installer yet. I also haven't tested compilation on cygwin.
