Hosting cross compilers on Cygwin versus Win32

I've built my cross compiler (ARM target) for Cygwin, and was wondering how 
to get a toolchain that can run on a straight Win32 system. Most Cygwin 
executables run as long as I put the Cygwin DLL on the Win32 machines, but I 
don't think it's that simple when the executables are cross compilation 
tools. Won't gcc crap out when it tries to read its spec file from a Cygwin 
file name? What about all the stdinc include files, where do they go? Or, 
should I have specified a prefix and/or exec-prefix that leaves the crossgcc 
tools in a Win32 directory?
