Building Mini vMac for Windows 10 using the Windows Subsystem for Linux

Mini vMac's site includes extensive documentation on how to build the emulator (https://www.gryphel.com/c/minivmac/build.html).  However, I found that these instructions didn't cover my use case, which was a Windows 10 machine running Ubuntu in the Windows Subsystem for Linux. My build unfortunately ended up being a bit of a hack, because the Makefile generation did not quite get the command lines for the C compiler and tools...

I always tend to run emulators on my machine. With that in mind, I do have hours of VMs in Virtual PC, VirtualBox, VMware, QEMU, and SheepShaver under my belt. But I've first used PPC Macs in high school, and now that I can emulate them, I would like to share some of my experiences here, as well as some pointers. Please take note that you are encouraged to give me a few pointers of your own: leave them in the comments! My Mac OS...
