What kind of mips machine (SGI/IRIX, DEC/Ultrix or OSF, Linux?)? You
should check with the crossgcc FAQ first to find out what you need to
copy over to the Cygwin machine (basically the entire runtime -- includes
and libraries) and what issues are involved. This is really not a Cygwin
issue, but rather a "cross build" issue.

See for crossgcc FAQ and various other things.

If your MIPS target is supported, it's not that hard to do (after you've
done it a few hundred times, it's easy ;-).
