grep through the binutils sources for _WIN32 or "_WIN32.*__CYGWIN" ?
It's what's normally used.

Well, it doesn't match ce (coredll not crtdll there), but then again,
there's no such thing as a native binutils CE port.  I was only
pointing it out as example of the nature of that macro.  I've never
really used crtdll -- it's all msvcrt nowadays, AFAIK.  Anyway,
this tends to bikeshed, so, I'll just state that whatever goes in
is fine by me.
