I want to compile under Cygwin under Windows.
I can do with "cross compile with MinGW under Linux" as well but
sometimes I do not like to reboot to Linux to build things.

Cygwin provides integrated auto-tools, cmake, etc. For MinGW
it is a bit difficult to set up them properly. But I will look at the
MinGW option as well with CMake, under Windows (not
cross-compile under Linux).
