I see (saw) what you are saying from my own experience. And it terrible
that it get untested on windows. But as you mentioned about working on
windows a lot, you can test and propose/ask for a fix. right?

Does all these projects you mentioned explicitly said they won't support
cmake build on windows? I had a similar one with libjpeg-turbo, they
support cmake build only on windows, even if someone provided a free patch
for any found problem on a *nix build. I mean that is crazy..
