Hmm...  I've also said that we should actually treat MinGW as a cross
build with target specific libraries before.  But that means a separate
build of GCC and friends just for MinGW and that is what the -mno-cygwin
switch is avoiding.  However, since this is basically what we're
discussing, providing cross platform libraries, maybe we should just
forget the -mno-cygwin switch and allow 'configure --host=mingw32' to
take care of it.
