Microsoft runs Ubuntu binaries now, just run the Linux version.

I haven't bothered with windows native stuff. If somebody else wants to
I'd listen, but I myself don't have a windows system or interest.

http://landley.net/toybox/design.html#portability explains some of the
issues. (Windows is LLP64 instead of LP64, no /proc files, there are a
few places like ifconfig we hardcall system call info, etc).
