The biggest problem is the use of our custom qmake 'compilers' for the various 
bits.  For instance, the path is hardcoded in many parts and uses the unix 
directory separator.  The hard part will be getting this all to work using 
cygwin tools and the windows compiler.  I haven't looked at it since the 
release of the windows port, but this might make it easier.  Anyways, not a 
terribly difficult task, just will take a bit of time.
