We're using MinGW for cross-compilation.
This has a few separate parts: binutils, gcc, w32api, run-time, ... The
w32api is part of the MinGW distribution, describing the Windows API. The
linker uses w32api to build the executable that will link correctly at
run-time against Windows DLLs.

Yes, its available. The vanilla release are available from here:
The w32api releases lag somewhat from what wine actually implements (and so,
what gets tested). Because of this, to allow cross-compilation of winetest
additional API calls need to be patched into w32api.
Precompiled versions of this improved MinGW are maintained by Hans Leidekker
and are available from:
For somewhat obscure reasons, I've ended up using an independent script to
generate the cross-compiler but it amounts to the same thing, especially as
Hans, Stefan Leichter and myself share patches.

No, not at all! All the patches against w32api have come from Hans or Stefan.

OK, so it looks like crypt32_test.exe wasn't building due to missing
CryptHashCertificate at 28 definiton (should now be fixed), msi_test.exe due to
missing MsiViewGetErrorA at 12 (now fixed) and shell32_test.exe due to missing
CLSID_FolderShortcut (again, fixed).
But, dsound_test.exe is failing with:
i686-mingw32msvc-gcc capture.o ds3d.o ds3d8.o dsound.o dsound8.o propset.o
testlist.o -o dsound_test.exe -ldsound -lole32 -lversion -luser32
-lkernel32 -ldxguid -luuid -ldxerr8
(.rdata+0x570): multiple definition of `CLSID_DirectSoundPrivate'
first defined here
(.rdata+0x580): multiple definition of `DSPROPSETID_DirectSoundDevice'
first defined here
Is this some kind of conflict between the MinGW definitions and wine's own
