Not tried myself, but found this link that may be of some help:
ClamAV Native Win32 Port - 0.98.4-2-gec232b6

It points to a fork of ClamAV repository modified to compile under Windows, adding support for Visual Studio and MinGW. I would use Visual Studio (download the C++ Express edition if you don't have it) and open the solution and try to compile. As I've not tried it myself, I have no idea if those work out of box or some tweaking is necessary, but seems like a great starting point.

BTW, is there any particular reason of wanting to compile it yourself? There are already built binaries here:
Free Antivirus for Windows - Open source GPL virus scanner

I went to that site but I cannot find "contrib/msvc/clamav.sln".

Also, I could not find any pre-built ones, so thank you for posting a link.

There is the GitHub URL, you can then clone the git repository with the full source from there. You'll find all files there.
