That is actually not MinGW (formely known as mingw32), but MinGW-w64 (a
new project, independent from the "old" MinGW32 project).
That's why JonY pointed you at i686-pc-mingw32-gcc, which is the old
MinGW (but not MinGW-w64) compiler.


If you have a choice, I'd recommend MinGW-w64 since the project is very
alive and JonY provides regular updates of the cygwin packages.
