But I am confused about compiler versions. If I get ir correctly, our Windows build is in fact cross-compiled under Ubuntu 12.04. I don't know if I can use a mingw "native" Windows compiler to create some libraries. I've had bad experiences trying to mix libs compiled with even slightly different mingw versions under Windows, so I fear a cygwin gcc version or cross-compiler coud lead to even more issues.

Using cygwin would not work.

The build server uses prebuild 3rdparty libs which were build on windows,

This works when the compiler matches, it was a GCC 4.7.2 with dw2 exeption handling:
