Hmm, it may or may not be...

I downloaded ftp://oss.sgi.com/projects/xfs/cmd_tars/attr_2.4.43-1.tar.gz
and found it builds OOTB, but my first attempt to use setfattr got me an error:
> $ ./setfattr/.libs/setfattr.exe -n bar -v baz foo
> setfattr: foo: Operation not supported
Nor was getfattr capable of showing me the attributes I set in the windows
explorer file properties "summary" tab. I'm taking a look through the strace
to see what's failing and why. The code might need a little porting.
