To my knowledge, no one has done this yet. 

I don't know about
the OTP team and what they've done, however the next OSE release
will only come with the beam compiler. This is a threaded code
compiler where the interpreter takes advantage of gcc specific
features with named labels. So there's bound to be some gcc
stuff there then. We'll just have to patiently wait and see.

Today, the win32-erlang runs only with the old byte code 
interpreter, jam. And the build process in the released code
is certainly not made for win32 builds.
