I think that is possible,
for me this patch was a simple exercise to see if it was possible to
also add cygwin as a target after having added the mingw target.

I looked very briefly at the source files and was unable to see how to
build the files I wanted, and getting them pre-compiled was enough for
me to prove
that building a cygwin-hosted compiler was possible.

Maybe somebody more at home in the cygwin source files is able to add
the correct steps to build the needed kernel-files from cygwin source

Simply overlooked this one,
the step worked for me, because I already have the correct w32api
files after building the mingw-hosted compiler
