It's doable.  It's not rocket science, believe me.  It's just a
question of how determined you are to make it happen.

If you still want to give it a try, I suggest to download the source
distributions of a couple of DJGPP ports of other GNU packages, like
Texinfo or Textutils, and look at the files in the djgpp/
subdirectory.  You will see that a batch file, usually called
config.bat or some such, is used to edit (with Sed) the configure
script in order to avoid pitfals that fail it on DOS/Windows systems,
and then the edited script is run by Bash.  It's quite possible that
you can simply copy the files in the djgpp/ subdirectory, with minimal
modifications, and use that to do the job.

Good luck (you will need it!)
