being a newbie to cross compilation under Mingw/Msys, I have problems setting up the x86_64-pc-mingw32 toolchain and integrating it into my existing mingw32 system.
I'm using bash (as sh.exe) and configure/make to build libs etc. which I can use from CodeBlocks or even VisualStudio.
This works finally with mingw32/msys, but it is hard for me to understand how to setup everything to being able to do cross compilation for x64 (building exes for XP or Vista x64) from mingw32.
As said, I'm a newbie (not in Windows, neither in Msys, but my Msys experience is more using it, not understanding all the configuration). Especially the logic behind cross-compilation isn't yet clear to me. I don't consider this to be solely a task for the mingw64 project, but I was encouraged to file a ticket :-), It would be very much appreciated to have some documentation on how to setup the toolchain - or in other words: how to integrate the files in mingw-w64-bin_i686-mingw_20080116.tar in an existing Mingw/Msys system.
Any docs/links/etc. very much appreciated.
All the best
