NightStrike's package is very specialized: by default it will run
on 64-bit Windows only, because it's part of the support package
for MinGW64 (or so I assume).  So, since the package already requires
a cross compilation environment, it might as well also require an
emulator to be able to execute tests for a successful distcheck.
wine comes to mind for this, together with binfmt-support to
automatically execute w32 binaries using wine.
