win32-loader is built entirely from sources available in Debian and 
doesn't embed any foreign binary.

On the other hand, win32-loader _is_ executing Windows system tools and 
_will_ modify the Windows bootloader, so it's far from surprising that 
it triggers anti-virus warnings.

So, my answer is "yes, it is a false negative".
