I should be able to set myself up for that soon, though not immediately. (I'm also using Mac OSX, not Windows, which I surmise from your statement will make it less easy?)
There is an XCode project in SVN for Mac OSX as well, and a Mac SDK available for download from sourceforge which should provide most or all of the dependencies, but I haven't ever built FreeOrion on a Mac so I can't comment on how difficult it will be.
On a different note, I am having trouble with the CreateBuilding effect. The following test building does nothing:
CreateBuilding does nothing in v0.3.13, and in any version prior to 3156, which happens to be the latest SVN revision, as of this writing.
Also, the game seems to crash whenever I try to destroy a planet.
I'm pretty sure it was working at some point, but it's probably been quite a while since effect-based destroying of objects was last modified. I'll have a look at it with the SVN version, which will probably have the same problem.
