Building unbound on Windows?

I was browsing through the sources and surprisingly, I found instructions for building on Windows. I thought I would play around with it. I've installed MSYS2 on a Windows VM, added development packages. I ran "./configure --enable-static-exe" and it succeeded. But make errors out quickly on DWORD.

Any suggestions on how to fix?

  238 | char* wsa_strerror(DWORD err);
