Cross-building Windows binaries using the mingw toolchain

I noticed that cross-building Windows binaries is currently not
supported. It seems that Hotspot in particular assumes that the host
and target operating systems are the same (for examples, Linux-to-Linux
cross builds are support). Assuming I can get it to work within the
current build system, would you be interested in integrating patches and
carry them forward?
Cross-build support would make it easier for GNU/Linux developers to
work on features that should have parity on Windows, but lack shared
native sources (e.g. networking-related features).
