Good. Did you have a Makefile that will build this under MinGW.
If yes, all you have to do is use winegcc & wrc instead of
gcc and windres (however, winegcc is still in development,
and can't generate DLLs, but that's another story).
If no, please port it first to MinGW.

OK, I accepted the bug, I'll help you out.

This is not currently possible, sorry. How big is this interface to
avisynth? The only option ATM is to have it out-of-process, so we'll
need to come up with some sort of stub/proxy, if you're interested.
