Hi Alexey,

I don't know how far you can get using the configure script under MSYS or 
Cygwin, but it *might* work, at least for some configurations. The configure 
script can definitely be used for cross-compiling Qt 4 and Qt 5 on unix 
targeting MinGW. To get some ideas look at the src/qt*.mk sources in the MXE 
project http://mxe.cc.
