yesterday I had a quick look at this directory and had the same impression. 
After some thinking about it I see only two alternatives:

1) either special-case all the configure checking when building kdelibs on 
windows, and just know that the stuff is available in kdelibs/win/

2) build and install kdelibs/win/ explicitely before kdelibs/, and then 
configure and build kdelibs/ as usual. (i.e. kdelibs/win/ would be more like 
kdesupport/ )

( 3) Try to implement something in the build system which first builds, the 
checks, then builds again ...not really)

I'd vote for option two, sounds better to me than too much special handling.
