The cygwin distro does not include any cross compilation tools. A
package that require tools not in the distro would not be accepted.

The package is actually build with native cygwin gcc+binutils.

The related discussion+patches are already on this list, e.g:

Yes, grub-setup builds and works OOTB. "grub-install /dev/sda",
grub-emu, grub-mkrescue, ... all work as expected. I use the cygwin
version of GRUB2 on two Windows+Linux work PC. It is IMO useful to
install+maintain boot manager from cygwin bash when Windows is the main
work OS.
