### Via mingw on Linux (not well supported)
+Setup on Ubuntu Lucid:
* `sudo apt-get install gcc-mingw32 wine`
* `export CC=i586-mingw32msvc-cc CXX=i586-mingw32msvc-c++ AR=i586-mingw32msvc-ar`
+
+Setup on Ubuntu Precise:
+* `sudo apt-get install gcc-mingw-w64-i686 g++-mingw-w64-i686 wine`
+* `export CC=i686-w64-mingw32-gcc CXX=i686-w64-mingw32-g++ AR=i686-w64-mingw32-ar`
+
+Then run:
* `./configure.py --platform=mingw --host=linux`
* Build `ninja.exe` using a Linux ninja binary: `/path/to/linux/ninja`
* Run: `./ninja.exe` (implicitly runs through wine(!))
