Indeed it does. To make life a bit easier I have put up a complete
current cross-tools set with the latest headers at
http://www.stats.ox.ac.uk/pub/bdr/RWin/i386cross.tar.bz2 (ca 5Mb)
Just unpack it somewhere, put the bin directory in your path and
follow the instructions in INSTALL.
The caveat remains, though: this is not tested frequently.
