I have seen this phrase, but I don't know what a "genuine cross compiler" is.

Specifically, what is the magic incantation which I should use instead
of "gcc -mno-cygwin" at the command line to produce a non-cygwin (pure
native woe32/64) executable?

Next, what is the magic incantation which I should use instead of
./configure.bat --no-debug --with-gcc --cflags -IC:/gnu/gnuwin32/include 
--ldflags -LC:/gnu/gnuwin32/lib --without-xpm
to configure emacs to use this "genuine cross compiler"?

Penultimately, DIUC that with an autoconf-generated configure script the
right way to configure a package to be cross-built is
./configure --build arch-vendor-os

Finally, will this produce a valid windows (XP 64-bit) emacs on linux:
./configure --build x86_64-w64-mingw32
