Why don't you use $(HOST_CC) to compile the signrom binary?

Like with this patch? Fixes Mingw32 compile for me.

If you're cross compiling, HOST_CC is the wrong compiler to use for the ROM build. For instance, if you were on a PPC host building an i386 QEMU package.

Building signrom with HOST_CC may be reasonable.

I'm rather indifferent either way. Shell should work pretty much everywhere and it's not really much / highly complex code.

It's also not exactly code I'd want to spend more time on than necessary, so if you feel like doing this in C with HOST_CC is better, feel free to do so.

Whatever works is fine with me.
