This code path is used mostly when cross target can't be found, which 
means that mingw is most likely not available. *windows-gnu targets, 
however, require cross compiled libgcc (or compiler-rt), which is 
roughly a part of mingw distro, so they will most likely not work 
anyway. When using *-windows target (meaning msvc compatibility mode), 
Wine is self sufficient and doesn't need any external cross compiled 
bits. If someone has an unusual setup and wants the old behaviour, it's 
probably good idea to explicitly specify CROSSTARGET anyway.
