Unfortunately, it might not be that simple. Most of the Windows compilers
are commercial products and as such they come with licences which often
put all kinds of limitations on non-personal use, time-sharing, and
product export.

So I would say the first step towards a Windows compiler farm would be to
determine which compilers we are interested in and check their licensing
terms (preferably with the help of lawyers) to see if the whole thing is
