I'm afraid that procedure is not tested.

If you want to compile CLISP with gnu-win32, cross compilation will
really be the only option.  I haven't built CLISP for NT since about
version b5.  I know it won't compile on version b10 without some work.
I've done most of this work, and work in the direction of from-scratch
NT hosted builds, but the gnu-win32 toolchain is still fairly
volatile.  I didn't want to delay the release any more.

Tip: if you want to build the Cygnus toolchain on ELF-based Linux, grab
the bfd directory from a previous release or from gdb-4.15.1. The
library distributed is a bit too bleeding edge w.r.t. ELF -- it
won't compile.

Get in touch with gnu-win32-request@cygnus.com.
IMO they are making great progress.
