Yes, that should work.

No.  It can be built with cygwin, but there still seems to be a lot of
broken behaviour.  It needs some volunteers to fix it up.

I'm not sure.

Currently, I don't think there is mingw32 support (I do hope to add it
sometime).  I tested it, and it does build under cygwin (if you use a
static configured).  See RELEASE-NOTES in 1.0.7 to see what
configurations worked for me.
