Hi Joerg,
Hi Marius,

It looks like Marius is currently implementing some serious improvements on the 
Windows build system. I think I'll just wait for that effort to be completed 
before trying again to build AVRDUDE for Windows.

Kind regards,

Until now, I have been shipping the Windows builds for AVRDUDE built
as cross-compilations on my FreeBSD system, using MinGW32 cross

(Why? Because so far, nobody volunteered to offer a Windows build.)

You can find the script I'm using in the tools/ directory.

I think I also tested that under some Linux distros, that's why the
script is searching for different possible compiler names.

But, as Marius also suggested, the major trick here is to provide the
prerequisite packages in that cross-compilation environment, in
particular libusb (any version), and hidapi. I remember I have once
been cross-compiling that into my MinGW32 environment manually, as
that's usually where cross-compilation packages of your Linux (or my
FreeBSD :) distro leave you alone.

In the end, I did test the result in certain VM or real Windows

Never trust an operating system you don't have sources for. ;-)
