It's as straightforward as any cross-compiltaion -- so it's not really.
It's actually relatively easy, but as we have extra library
dependencies, the boring part is to collect the Windows libraries and
setup the various environment variables so the tools find them.
Apart that it's the standard mechanism for the build system you use,
e.g. for Autotools it'd be --host=i686-w64-mingw32 (or similar depending
on what host you actually want to build for).

There is some docs at http://www.geany.org/Support/CrossCompile -- it's
a bit outdated, but the basis are there.

Indeed, see http://www.geany.org/Support/BuildingOnWin32
This uses Windows makefiles, but you can also use Waf if you prefer.
The environment setup step is the same in both cases anyway.
