I'm not so sure WIN32 is supported. I know the code is there (I wrote it),
but it has never been tested... None of the Windows systems available to me
include a compiler [except for Cygwin + gcc, but that would be cheating, and
I never succeeded building a libpari.so with those anyway]. I haven't checked
mingw32 yet.
