Rtems for a space project

Dear all,

I work for an aerospace company and my activity on RTEMS is aimed at 
evaluating its usage for the  on-board SW of an European Space Agency 

Rtems has been already used in the some ESA mission (i.e. Herschel/Planck).

In any case, it would have been nice to use RTEMS with a Windows host, 
but it seems so far that it is not possible. Executable files compiled 
on a Windows host are not compatible with the elf/multiboot 
specifications (surely for what we have seen in the last weeks).

Moreover, it would be even nice to me
1) to write down this issue and to try to solve it in the next RTEMS 
versions or,
2) if it is somehow already possible, to show the steps to generate a 
RTEMS application on a Windows host in an ELF format.

Should the Rtems community solve this issue, I'd be very grateful.
