Both cygwin and mingw come with a set of win32 headers (the
same for both) suitable for porting a basic windows applications,
though I myself never did this.

mingw produces a stand-alone binary for windows.

cygwin produces a binary that needs cygwin1.dll, the unix layer built on
top of
windows. I don't know the details of the conditions on which
cygwin1.dll can be distributed.
