Oh, for what it's worth, if you check the class compatibility page

Some of the classes are broken, but most of them might actually be just fine.  So what I said before, about maybe it's stable and doesn't need maintenance, or maybe it's all broken and not getting maintenance - It's probably still worthwhile for you to explore and see if you can make it work with what's already there.

To answer your question about the PCL DLL...  I have had generally good luck with simply building something on linux, and then copying the DLL over to windows.  I don't know in which situations the PCL is required, but as I said, I've had generally good luck ignoring that and just brainlessly copy the DLL.
