Well, I have tried in the past, and I think I actually got libvirt 0.4.4 
to build with MinGW/MSYS on Windows, but unfortunately only static 
Bet back then only libxen was needed, not libxenstore.
Shouldn't it - in theory - be possible to build a libvirt for Windows 
without the need for a remote libvirtd?
What made me optimistical was the possibility to build libxen and the 
fact that Qemu also runs on Windows.
