it could certainly be done, as there is nothing really platform
specific, although I don't have the product to try a build. It's just a
question of the project files.

just the same as for the release icecast, xml2, xslt, pthread-win32,
ogg, vorbis, theora, curl.  The last 2 are optional but you lose some
functionality if they are missing.

I don't have access to a win2003/VS.NET to even attempt a build, I
suspect we could do with cleaning up the build process for win32 but
it's a bit hard to do without trying it.
