Eros uses the mingw_cross cross-compiling environment to build mingw programs for windows on *nix hosts. You can of course use your system mingw packages, however mingw_cross is both toolchain and something of a package manager as well. It includes build scripts to download and compile a wide range of very useful programs (for us, boost, qt are important).

Note that building your own static library (with a wrapper) accessing to ROS functionnalities under *nix hosts and then linking it with a program under mingw in windows is possible (check specific configuration change in the guides for that).
