Yep, you want the mingw-w64 cross compiler, x86_64-w64-mingw32-gcc
(or i686-w64-mingw32-gcc for 32 bit). There's a cross-compiled sqlite
package already available under mingw64-x86_64-sqlite3 in setup - or
http://mirrors.kernel.org/sourceware/cygwin/noarch/release/mingw64-x86_64-sqlite3/mingw64-x86_64-sqlite3-3.19.3-1.tar.xz
if you're okay with that particular release.
