I think the main dependencies of libupnp are BSD sockets and 
POSIX threads.

There are patches on the SourceForge page for FreeBSD and Win32.

The BSD patch is trivial, the Win32 patch is a little more involved but
basically seems to consist of the usual BSD to Winsock modifications
and some conversion routines not found in Windows apparently.

It looks like a portable tree could be created with relatively low effort,
but it probably won't happen upstream since the project seems to be
dormant since 2003.
