We do not support external scripts on this mailing list.

If you want to compile for Windows, install wsl (wsl2 does not
work here, wsl works fine).
Then decide if you want to use msvc, clang or gcc for compilation.

For gcc, there is an Ubuntu incantation to install the Windows toolchain.
While this is not necessarily a cross-compilation, I suspect using
the configure option "cross-prefix" is easiest.

For msvc / clang, you do not need the whole Visual Studio, only
the Build Tools for Visual Studio are needed. For clang and msvc, use
the configure option "toolchain=msvc"

In both cases, you don't need a cross compilation, just tell the configure
script that your host os is win32.
