Win32/MFC porting toolkit?


Today if you want to port OpenSource program from Linux/UNIX to windows you can use cygwin that implements most of API to do easy porting...
Actually I was able to compile not cygwin ready sources with only changes in makefiles...

Is there any toolking to port Windows porgrams to Linux?
I mean to take native windows application souce, compile it/linke it with special libraries (like for UNIX programs to run with cygwin.dll) and run it. Maybe with slight changes in progect/makefiles...

Some toolkit that would implement Win32 API, MFC???

Perhaps Winelib is what you are looking for...

A word of warning: winelib doesn't include MFC. It can, however, compile MFC if you have a version of MS Studio with the source code. But note that some (sub-)versions do not allow the source code to be used for any purpose other than creating software that runs on a MS-Windows Operating System.
