I really don't know what you mean.
Just make sure you have the latest mingw64 packages installed,
create a separate build dir, for instanmce parallel to the setup
source dir, and call configure make:
cd <checked out setup sources dir>
../configure --host=i686-w64-mingw32 --target=i686-w64-mingw32
And that's it. I tested to build setup HEAD from scratch for 32 and
64 bit, and both versions worked fine.
