Cross-compiling with mingw?

Have anyone tried cross-compiling with mingw from KDevelop, and if so, how do
I set it up correctly?
I want to be able to build my application for both Linux and Windows, from
the same project, but using different build types. I'm using Gentoo Linux,
and have emerged the following packages:
I'm stuck at selecting the correct compiler. I've made a new build type named
"windows", but I can't select the mingw compiler from the "Project Options" >
"Configure Options" > "C++" > "C++ Compiler". Is this because the mingw
compiler isn't located by KDevelop? The prefix path is "/opt/xmingw/bin/",
maybe I need to set an environment variable?
Do I need to specify the compiler as the "Compiler command CXX" field? If so,
what executable should I use from the mingw package? I've tried this approach
but it seems to fail during the configure, saying (using
"/opt/xmingw/bin/i386-mingw32msvc-gcc" as CXX):
*checking for C++ compiler default output file name...
*configure: error: C++ compiler cannot create executables
If what I'm doing is totally wrong, and impossible, is there another way to
cross-compile for Windows?
Thank you for your time.
