No, there's no way to do this using existing cygwin tools.
You could build a cross-compiler to do this. It's a complicated task,
though. It would require regenerating a new version of gcc and bringing
over all of the libraries for linux to your PC.
If you do a google search for "cross compiler" you'll be off to a good
start if you want to try this. The crossgcc at sources.redhat.com
mailing list is also designed for dealing with cross compilers.
