I see... well... hack away!
As Jason said: the real meat is probably in the tests themselves,
so it would be great if you can contribute.

How shall we organize this? If you have SVN experience, it may
help to give you write access to the repository? A big patch in the
SF tracker is also possible of course, but would make you more dependant
on people with svn write access to commit your patches.

I leave it up to you whether you do the autotools files yourself.
If you see it as a nice challenge, just try learning from the examples.
But feel free to just do the win32 stuff, and ask the mailinglist
for autotools support.
