Probably you should just implement it from scratch. Anything
involving string manipulation (which is most things) would need to be
rewritten anyway, since Perforce Jam uses only unsafe fixed-sized
buffers. It can't be that hard. If you look at execnt.c you'll see
that there's already some code for generating temporary (.bat in this
case) files.
