Actually, I am using i686-pc-linux-gnu as $build.  I think you meant to
ask for --host.  I am using --host=x86_64-w64-mingw32 CFLAGS=-m32, which
is distinctly different than i686-pc-mingw32.  For example, they use
completely different runtime libraries.  I think it would be an error to
conflate the two toolchains.  Thus, I stand by my patch as the correct
solution for this issue.
