OK, that is what I was thinking. I will start looking for instructions
on doing this, I have the mingw32 cross compiler setup under debian at

In particular I would be interested in being able to convert a debian
package into a cygwin package for the installer....

you might be interested in this 
Here you can see our effort to cross compile using the debian system
for guiding the packaging and building

Well, I think you might care, but not if the compiler can bootstrap
under cygwin. 

Maybe this should be a release criterion?

Maybe you don't care if the gcc is fully usable before it is release?

I hereby offically volunteer to check any release of the compile if it
compiles before it is taken into the distribution. Some people (like
me) maintain thier own set of patches for the gcc, and need to be able
to compile it, not only use it.

Sure, I just figured after my third mail getting ignored that I can ask
least check if anyone is reading these mails.
