It looks only for linux, but I will see tha batch files

Yes, I also have mingw under linux and cross-compiled luatex too
I would like to have *the same* under windows 7.
If I understand well Akira uses VisualC : I also have the express edition
but until now I was unable to compile showttf.c (while it's ok with mingw)
so better start with mingw.
