Windows is supported by the underlying lib, and has been for some time. It's also supported by extension author at their github page.
I have some precompiled 32 bit windows php 5.3 binaries on my site:
I've also documented how I went about building the binaries, so 64 bit builds or 5.4 builds should be fairly easy to do following the same recipe.
To install the AMQP PHP extension, you must first install the » librabbitmq library. You will need the 0-9-1 version of the rabbitmq-c client library, linked to the rabbitmq-codegen version that corresponds to the version of the broker you are using. Use the following steps to download and install the library:
# Download the rabbitmq-c library @ version 0-9-1 git clone git://github.com/alanxz/rabbitmq-c.git cd rabbitmq-c # Enable and update the codegen git submodule git submodule init git submodule update # Configure, compile and install autoreconf -i && ./configure && make && sudo make install
Information for installing this PECL extension may be found in the manual chapter titled Installation of PECL extensions. Additional information such as new releases, downloads, source files, maintainer information, and a CHANGELOG, can be located here: » http://pecl.php.net/package/amqp.
Note to Windows users: This extension does not currently support Windows since the librabbitmq library does not yet support Windows.

Totally agree. I've followed the instruction and I've successfully intalled this extension.
On a mac os (10.5+) it was necessary to run aclocal prior to autoreconf.
./configure --enable-64-bit was useful too, since it would compile as 32bit by default.
The last line now looks like
aclocal && autoreconf -i && ./configure --enable-64-bit && make && sudo make install
For ubuntu 12.04, the only way to install this extension is to install rabbitmq-c lib prior, and the only working way is to follow instruction on : https://github.com/alanxz/rabbitmq-c
PECL now has stable version 1.0.0 of this code that does compile cleanly with PHP >= 5.0 (as of 15-Feb-2012). I personally had a clean build with no warnings under 5.2.17
Previously the code was not stable, and only compiled nicely under 5.3
I don't know what's up with the extension posted on code.google.com, but the PECL one is the supported extension.
If you get these errors:
"error: possibly undefined macro: AM_PROG_LIBTOOL" ===> you need to install 'libtool'.
"Can't exec "aclocal" ===> You need to install 'automake'
Use your linux distro's default providers to install them e.g. on opensuse, I'd use 'zypper install ..'
