You need to look into porting it to WineLib, have a look through the
archives, Dimi Paun has been having fun with that lately. I think there
might be docs on the site too.
The first step is to get it building using MinGW on Windows iirc, using
the standard Linux build system and I think the Wine headers. Once
that's working, compiling it into a linux .so file should just be a case
of altering a couple of environment variables and compiling it.
Note that for various reasons I won't go into here, you'll end up with a
.so file (ie a linux dll) not an executable. You'll still need to run
"wine foo.so" to make it work, so a WineLib port is generally useful if
you're intending to later integrate it with some Linux native APIs - if
you simply want it to run on Linux and be done with it, there's little
point, you might as well just run the windows .exe
