So redirecting I/O works for stdout, stderr and it works for build 
commands like gcc, make, grep, etc?

IME it sometimes works and sometimes doesn't, and it might depend on 
which program is being spawned (e.g. which grep you use). I recently 
checked the commits on the GLib gspawn-win32 code and there didn't seem 
to be any relevant fixes.
