I would not mind but see below.

Possibly but remember that batch files are erally restricted in what
they can do. The batch file also has to run on both Win9x and NT*.

I think that's the way to go. Anyone wishing to compile the tests with
MSVC already needs to use perl scripts to generate the Visual Studio
project files. These scripts could probably easily be modified to
generate the above batch files too. That would be much more maintainable
than putting hard-coded scripts into Wine.

Then we would run the script on a Unix machine and upload them some
place so that Windows users can get them and build without installing

Yep, and it should not even be too hard since it's only the bugs in the
tests that we need to fix in this case.
