The old mingw.org (i686-pc-mingw32) toolchain has been removed from the 
Cygwin distribution.  It was unmaintained (both upstream and downstream) 
and limited to 32-bit support.

Users who wish to cross-compile for native Windows should use the 
mingw64-* ({i686,x86_64}-w64-mingw32) toolchains instead.
