Download djgpp and re-compile.

A Windows version of this sort of tool is *mandatory* since it is often 
used as a backdoor/tunnel on a vulnerable machine. And what OS is more 
vulnerable than any other ? Hence this mandatory requirement :-)

Bah! The kids that needs a netcat-like program to backdoor a system 
aren't really worthy of owning it in the first place. Spending quality 
coding time so that juvenile idiots (the kind that have a hard time 
grasping the meaning of the switch() statement) have a means of quickly 
doing something non-constructive and possibly illegal is not my idea of fun.
