I noticed that you were the first one that added support to build
native Win32 tools using MinGW GCC via:

Add support for building native win32 tools
Add support for compiling the host tools in the tools directory using
the MinGW toolchain. This produces executables which can be used on
standard Windows computers without requiring cygwin.
One must specify the MinGW compiler and strip utilities as if they
were the host toolchain in order to build win32 executables, eg:
make HOSTCC=i586-mingw32msvc-gcc HOSTSTRIP=i586-mingw32msvc-strip tools

There are also several follow-up commits that fixed the build errors
from time to time:

mkenvimage does not build due to missed os_support.o and unsupported
file modes S_IRGRP S_IWGRP.
Tested with mingw 4.2.1 on ubuntu 12.04.

compiler.h: add uint typedef
Recent crc changes started using the "uint" type in headers that are used
on the build system. This subsequently broke mingw targets as they do not
provide such a type. So add this basic typedef to compiler.h so that we
do not have to worry about this breaking again in the future.

Today I tried to build the Windows tools by following the README, and
got build errors.
$ make HOSTCC=/usr/bin/x86_64-w64-mingw32-gcc tools
note: I am running this from Linux. It's not clear to me whether we
should run this from Windows natively or cross-compile on Linux.
It seems that this MinGW Windows build has been broken for quite a long time.
Will you address this? Thanks!
