Do you have a pointer to the instructions please?

Subject: 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?
