Greetings, and thanks for your report!  The GCL team currently has one
(to my knowledge) developer with access to a Windows development
environment.  He has graciously consented to supply us with the
binaries you're looking at.  I'm cc'ing him on this request.  I know
he's likely out of town for a while, so please be patient.  

In case you'd like to help with the Windows port, please let us know.

Take care,
