However, it could easily be standard. I could include a i686-pc-mingw32-gcc
and a i686-pc-mingw-ld in the gcc distribution. And, I could also alias
all of the i686-pc-cygwin-* tools to i686-pc-mingw32-*. That would provide
the equivalent of a cross compilation environment for cygwin.
Then you just have to say
configure --host=i686-pc-mingw32 --target=i686-pc-mingw32 --build=i686-pc-cygwin
and you bypass the arbitrary distinction of having a whole build system,
based on cygwin which exists just so that uname returns 'mingw', or whatever.
(Yes, I know that MSYS does other things, too, but this does get rid of
the requirement of using MSYS just to make it easy to use autoconf/libtool)
