All Windows support in rebar is from contributors using rebar on
Windows. I remember it's being used for building drivers plus reltool
and appup support.

Can you file a ticket or mail the rebar list with more info?

There is nothing depending on msvc in rebar's native code plugin. All
of it is configurable via rebar.config and environment variables.

Please see
1. {port_env, []} in rebar.config.sample
2. default_env/0 in rebar_port_compiler.erl
