Simply speaking, building directly from Windows is not supported (it's far too problematic).
The alternative is to build on a virtual Linux machine instead. I.e. install VirtualBox / VMWare, create a virtual machine, install Ubuntu on it, then follow the typical Linux build instructions. Be aware that you'll need a _lot_ of disk space and probably memory though.

I had used "Portable Ubuntu Remix" (pubuntu 10.04 LTS) to build Android (Gingerbread) before and it is quite successful. It actually works like a virtual machine, but windows seamlessly integrate with Windows. It should be using Cygwin. For me, I needed to expand the virtual disk image of it to fit the Android building. You can also map disk partitions.
However it is quite old. That's why I stopped using it and installed a local version.
