They have been able to leverage a lot of the windows cross compilation work done in SUSE.  TakeoffGW packages are built on SUSE and it uses the cygwin installer to download and install them.  Cygwin installer is fairly mature (has a number of quirks but it works).

So far I have only used it to build Leksah, but it has a lot of packages available.
