Default How to include a part of Wine that can only be compiled on Windows (Gecko)

Just to be curious, why is that? Is it some ATL templates or something?
I guess the reason I'm confused it is would seem that if Wine supported
the feature it would also support a way to compile against it. I
thought that was the original goal of WINE, to allow people to compile
Linux native versions of their Windows programs.

If it is a header file/template thing, could we build the output of
their version of "gcc -E" freely?
