Hello Christian

We have not considered that. Support for cross-compiling to Windows has never 
been official and we don't have any tests for that.

Also note that it depends on *which* cross compiler you have. We'd have to 
ship the mingw compilers for Linux just like we do for Windows -- the ones on 
Fedora, for example, are not usable because they use SJLJ exceptions and we're 
switching to DW2/SEH on Windows.

It's probably best that the cross-compiled versions of Qt get distributed by 
the same community that produces the mingw cross-compiler in the first place. 
Fedora does that:

# yum search mingw32-qt
