Just have to say that is awesome that you are getting experience in
cross-compiling.  So glad for mingw32.  The only issues I've run into
come from mingw's use of the very old msvcrt.dll, which can be a problem
when you're writing code that gets loaded into an existing app running a
newer version of msvcrt.

At one time I was developing an app targeting OS X and Windows with Qt.
 Back then (PPC OS X 10.3) I could build a complete cross-compiling
environment quite nicely that, when combined with Qt's nice build tools,
emitted either a complete .app bundle for OS X, or a windows EXE all
wrapped up in an nsis installer.
