Half a year ago I was traveling a bit and tried to get lighty to compile natively on win32
Some time has passed and I concentrated on the other stuff in the 1.5.0 tree, leaving the nasty win32 code in place for someone to pick up. Ben Harper aka rogojin has picked it up and released a win32 installer for the latest pre-release
A simple tests shows that staticfiles are working nicely and that http-proxying with mod-proxy-core works too. Nice work, Ben.
