For libsndfile, my solution has been :

  - Use MinGW on windows.
  - Release pre-compiled binaries.

I provide basic instructions for compling using MinGW:


And if anyone asks why I don't just ship project files, I point them

The main problem with the above is that I need to have a windows
machine that I actually don't use for anything else.

The other problem is that MinGW currently does not support compiling
for 64 bit windows. From what I hear, that is coming.
