Note that we already have a usable Windows version using Cygwin (and
there's no real reason why that version can't include xganim; it's
just that the person who built the binary package didn't enable Motif
support, which xganim requires).

It's the "native" Windows version which is currently still at an
"experimental" stage. Once it's "ready", the native version should be
a better option for most users, as Cygwin has problems of its own.
