Pete Batatd (developer of libusb-1.0 Windows backend) has found
a way to build libftdi-1.0 under Windows using MinGW and CMake.

The key is to use "cmake -i" to set up all the parameters
which are corresponding to your setup and disable problematic

I am having some problems with his libusb-1.0 binary snapshots
for the MinGW-w64 64bit build. But you can build libusb-1.0
Windows backend with MinGW-w64 pretty easily. In that
case, I can build 32bit and 64bit of libftdi-1.0 (the dll,
the import library and the examples) under Windows.
