Adding the headers and libraries with -I and -L should work fine. The
Windows 10 Linux layer (Windows Services for Linux, if memory serves)
is more or less an ELF loader and a shim between the ELF process and
the rest of the OS that translates Linux syscalls into Windows
syscalls, so unless the itsdb code invokes some kind of esoteric
syscall, everything should run fine.

Sounds like what Guy wants is to check out the part of the LOGON tree
with the relevant bits of code and library, and point the ACE Makefile
at that (with a bit of luck there's a variable CFLAGS where you can
put the -I and LDFLAGS for the -L).
