It means that a person who is doing local winGRASS compilation
on his/her computer, may please check for the issue. That requires
a development environment (i.e. compiler and more) on the machine
as outlined here:

Unfortunately not. We recently made some changes in the XDR
support (needed to get GRASS 7 compiled for Android) in the raster3D
library which apparently does not compile on Windows.

We'll sort it out soon, I hope.
