If you build with the mingw-w64 toolchain, most probably the easiest
approach is through the Cygwin 'mingw64-x86_64' package [1]. For this one,
you need to use --host=x86_64-w64-mingw32, then configure will find the
compiler tools (named x86_64-w64-mingw32-*) automatically.

I don't know. I've never tried it. Most likely the --host value
can be anything that matches x86_64-*-mingw32. About the CC, CFLAGS,
CPPFLAGS values, you find the general guidelines here: [2]. Please
report the results when you have success.
