I'm already working on the cygwin cross-compiler. it is able to produce
both cygwin binaries (depend on cygwin.dll) and mingw32 binaries (do not
depend on cygwin.dll), simply by setting the compiler flag -mno-cygwin.
There may be cases where a pure mingw32 compiler would be better, in which
case a separate mingw32 package would be fine. But you should make sure it
will really be necessary.
