We support Mingw32 longer than exists. Well, I mean my
version which is basically Colin Peter's orginal one, modified as a
cross compiler. The developers refused (i.e. never replied)
on my requests to merge oure works. 

Furthermore this cross compiler allows us to but required functions
into the runtime and not into GnuPG.  This is very convenient and it
is possible to use this kit under Cygwin32 on a Windows box.
