On Windows you have several options:
There is using cygwin and not using cygwin (see http://www.cygwin.com/ but
basically it provides a Unix/Linux environment including bash).
With cygwin installed you can use bash & its cvs and follow previous steps
below, however I personally use native win32 cvs client and cmd.exe (the
NT shell, similar but not quite the same as command.com) which the previous
steps map to the following:
mkdir %ABIROOT% (assumes command extensions or \some\suitable\location exists)
cvs login (the password is "anoncvs")
cvs checkout abi
[Note: the basic difference is use \ instead of / for local paths,
use %name% instead $name for environment variables, and use set instead of
Don't forget to checkout the other cvs modules abidistfiles, nsis, ... (if
you actually want it to compile).

If you need help with the actual compiling please let me know
(I can help with MS VC -- 5,6,7 or whatever the apparently free one is,
but someone else will have to help if you want to use MingW or Cygwin gcc).
