As the cross-compiler package included in Debian is slightly older to make 
cross-compiled apps run with cygwin.dll of gnu-win32 B17.1, it is a good
idea to make updated cross-compiler from 17.1B distribution.  
What I did was following;
1)un-tar cdksrc.tar in SRC=/usr/local/src/cygwin32 for example, 
2)mkdir $(SRC)/i586-pc-cygwin32 ,and cd there
3)../configure --target=i586-pc-cygwin32 --host=i586-pc-linux
4)make, then install
I think making cross-compiler from original gcc would be tough with/without
MSV++ headers.
