You don't have to compile from Linux. You can always (just like I said)
compile with cygwin using autotools. It's just more painful than
cross-compilation. That's why cross is the preferred option - it's
almost as simple (and fast) as normal linux compilation.
But I don't say, that new autotools-based build is more painful than
legacy, Makefile.mingw based one. It may be for now, when we don't have
any docs about it.

Personally - no, I don't like Cygwin. But LRN, who sent us initial
patches for fixing autotools-based win32 buildsystem, used it.
And you don't have to use two boxes. I use linux machine with Win7
launched within virtualbox. You can use Windows machine with
As I said, cygwin should handle build on win32. If not - it should be
fixable. Also, wiki could be updated to explain cygwin setup process for
