Have a look at the Gnu-Win32 project
( I don't think that MSVC can read
gcc debugging info so you are left with using gdb. :(
I believe that Solaris -> NT cross compiling and Linux -> NT cross compiling
work just great...the Cygwin32 toolkit (gcc for NT) is actually built on a
Solaris machine before release(although you can rebuild the thing on NT ;)
The guy's on the gnu-win32 mailing list may have a a fair bit more help to
give as this list is mostly inhabited by embedded developers.
