Similar case for libsndfile, the maintainer has also contributed to
Wine in the past.

"...I release a binary windows installer for
libsndfile. The binaries are generated using a Linux to Windows
cross-compiler and for the win32 version I run the testsuite under
Wine (windows API emulator). I then run INNO Setup under wine to
generate the installer executable."
