I am building on a Windows 10 (64-bit) PC, targeting 32-bit Windows.  Is the --build option correct for this scenario?  If not, how do I change it in the Eclipse settings?

The --build option says on what system was the compiler _built_.  By
contrast, the --host option says what is the target of the code
emitted by the compiler, and that is mingw32 in your case, which is
what you want.

IOW, the compiler was cross-compiled on GNU/Linux, but it produces
code for MinGW.  And that is OK.
