Build libpst for Windows?

We’re about to do a new Xena release at work, but before that happens I need to (somehow) create a Windows binary of readpst (from libpst) to normalise Outlook PST files. Normally I’d just do it under cygwin, but as of version 0.6.x that requires the cygwin server to be installed and running on the client’s machine (which introduces a whole new level of pain).

We have a native build of readpst from before I worked there, but no-one on “the Google” appears to know how to build it. It’s certainly not my strong point! It’s starting to get tricky..
