Okay, so I spoke about something that I don't really know about, since 
I don't use Windows. But what was the whole "Still can't compile 
backend of frontend on Windows" discussion about? My impression is that 
LLVM only builds under Cygwin. This doesn't really count (IMO) since it 
makes Windows look like Unix anyway, from an API perspective.

In fact, with regards to the specific "cannot unlink while open" issue, 
Cygwin works around it (partially) by removing the file as soon as the 
file is closed. I'm not sure that would be sufficient in this case, but 
it might be.
