[Rd] Cross-compiling to Windows

I have built a new Linux->mingw32 cross-compiler using the equivalent of
MinGW-1.1 updated by the latest header files.  Links are on the Rtools
portal.  I've tested it as far as cross-compiling R-devel and running some
tests.  There were several cross-compilers I found on the Web, but all
lacked Fortran support.

If you are upgrading, beware that this is mingw32- and not
i386-mingw32msvc-, so MkRules will need to be changed.  (Also, beware that
HEADERS there must be correct: if wrong compilation may succeed but use
the Linux headers.)
