What steps would you make " reasonably confident" - is running the test 
cases enough ?
I personally can checkout the git master branch from freedesktop from

The dbus4win could do similar for their environment.

The patch should be splitted into smaller pieces like autotool build 
system, cmake build system, windows only code fixes, main codes fixes.
