I'm taking over the building for Windows questions ;)

There is a conveniance option in all the gnupg packages:

./ --build-w32

This will automatically configure your build so that it places the windows 
binaries under ~/w32root and looks for dependencies in that place.
(Take a look at the script if you want to know how you can modify 

On debian wheezy / ubuntu:
apt-get install mingw-w64-i686

Then get libgpg-error sources and run:
./ && ./ --build-w32 && make && make install

Repeat for all dependencies you need for gnupg. 

And it should work.

You can also use the gpg4win scripts to build it but I guess if you only want 
to hack gnupg this is overkill.
