I really don't know what you mean.

Just make sure you have the latest mingw64 packages installed, 
create a separate build dir, for instanmce parallel to the setup
source dir, and call configure make:

  cd <checked out setup sources dir>
  cd ..
  mkdir build
  cd build
  ../configure --host=i686-w64-mingw32 --target=i686-w64-mingw32

And that's it.  I tested to build setup HEAD from scratch for 32 and
64 bit, and both versions worked fine.
