I use the mingw debian package to crosscompile openssl, gnutls, zlib,
expat, gpg-error and curl... but I use ad-hoc scripts (the ones that use
a recent autotool based build system are easy to crosscompile, while
other have ad-hoc makefiles like openssl)

mh... I do not completely agree... I think a separate repo should be
the way to start... but at the end I would like to see these packages
in debian... the best developing environment (not only the best OS).

If you want to start this nice "project"...
I can help a bit
