MingW32 is not cross compiled.  You don't need a Linux box to do
anything here - download 1.0.7, download MingW32, compile away.

Building your own binary is complex and fussy, and I don't recommend
it unless you know what you are doing, but you certainly don't need
anything but a regular Windows box to do it.
