First you have to check that you have all the library build dependencies you
need available in mingw64-x86_64-... packages, and install them (they install
into /usr/x86_64-w64-mingw32/sys-root/mingw/{lib,include} directories), and the
related mingw64-x86_64-binutils, which go in the same tree, then configure the
build to use those cross-tools, similar to how you would do an ARM cross-build
on x86 Linux.

Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
