Why not build a canadian build under Linux?

With ct-ng on Linux you can build:
1) a linux->target toolchain
2) a linux->mingw toolchain
with these 1 and 2 you can build:
3) a mingw->target toolchain

Some advantages:
* Building the toolchain on Linux takes much less time.
* Much less troubles during the build since you are not bothered by
cygwin quirks.
* The mingw based toolchain performs much better on Windows resulting
in shorter build times as well.
* One Development environment for building all compiler toolchains.

Have Fun!

Kind Regards,
