- ocamlbuild works on windows and linux
- findlib works on windows and linux

(however you need some tools from cygwin in some case like for building

flexdll is not required directly (i think you don't need to invoke it
directly) and ocamlmklib can be replaced by ocamlbuild.

Building ocaml itself is still complicated on Windows (but not that much
once you know how to do it), but I don't think you can easily address
this problem in any way.

So: what need to be improved?
