I have close to no experience with Windows DLL, and I didn't succeed in
building a usable pari DLL on Windows. Using Cygwin gcc, I could build a DLL
(needed a few non obvious fixes in the distribution Makefiles), but gp then
segfaults on startup...  I'll add the request to the TODO list.

Maybe it would be easier with a native Windows compiler ? [the .def files
produced by the Cygwin failed build could be used there]. I have no reports
so far of anyone compiling a pari DLL for Windows.
