Hi Ludwig,

I have the ability to build GDAL/MS4W with FileGDB (I put my notes at 
http://trac.osgeo.org/gdal/wiki/FileGDB).  We also did some testing 
during the WMS Benchmarking exercise, but had problems accessing FileGDB 
maps in MapServer through Apache (both on Windows and Linux...I am not 
sure if that is fixed yet or not).  I am not sure that this support is 
ready for a production environment.

FileGDB will be available in MS4W when GDAL 1.9.0 is released.  If you 
need a custom MS4W build you can always contact me directly.
