Comment (by Balling):

 >creates libraries in .a format which is incompatible with MSVC.

 Why? .a file is just a static linked library, called .lib in windows. .dll
 is on linux .so and is dynamic (well, except for the whole ld-linux.so
 mess, cause ld-linux.so is an executable really, link to ld-linux.so is
 absolute in all .so).

 Does renaming to .lib work?
