This will take much more than just a library.  You need to change the
stub loader and the startup code, so that programs can function as
both DJGPP and Windows PE executable, and you need to change the
low-level functions in the DJGPP libc.a to issue OS calls either to
the Windows native API or to the DPMI API, depending on the mode in
which the executable runs.
