Have you tried using cygwin32?  It's an egcs port to Win32 systems which
has a POSIX compatibility library which I understand allows a great many
Unix apps to build out of the box.  If not it would at least give you a
head start.

There is also a mgwin32 (or somesuch) compiler, which allows native
win32 applications to be written.

One problem would be the need to provide a tcpd equivalent - the server
doesn't really do much networking by itself.

In any case, I'm not sure how useful it would be for Windows users -
most Windows news clients include their own offline facilities already.
