MinGW cross compiling only worked in a very limited way, I had to call
Wine to run makesdna/makesrna, but last time I tried it was broken
(can't recall exactly what failed...).
Since we dont even officially support MinGW on Windows, Im not sure
its worth the effort to support cross compiling to it on other
