Shoot. I just realized something about your post. You're talking about building for 32-bit. I believe you can do so with 64-bit minigw as I'm near certain the 64-bit build of the compilers and linkers can create 32-bit executables. You specify the architecture with some switch, i forget what as I've only used it once or twice. maybe -arch? I'd have to google it.

Anyway, it would be worth doing some legwork, and using the 64-bit minigw on a 64-bit system assuming you can. Then you run your build process for both on the same machine.

The only downside to using Minigw is you don't necessarily get access to the latest compilers.

I don't really like CMake, or make for that matter. I'm one of those people that feels like if you need a make file should have structured your source differently, *unless* you have code generation in place as part of the build process, or unless you want to run your tests as part of the build process, and honestly, I think a shell script is easier to use and understand. I don't really understand the point of make and cmake except to make your build scripts cross platform, but if you really want that you could just use powershell for it these days. Too many tools, too much nonsense. Not my circus, not my monkeys.
