It's really not that hard.  You need the native tools built and installed.
Then you do a configure with --target=powerpc-eabi (or whatever)
and then the make and make install.  Depending on what sources you
use, you may or may not have problems building it (the FSF sources are not
tested for all configurations and the Cygnus versions we ship as the
gnu-win32 releases are only tested for i386-cygwin32 native so once
again you may have problems compiling other configurations but in
principle everything should just work.
