I have no comment on how to successfully cross-compile for Windows.

However I will say that as a general policy GNU programs never enable
-Werror for our published packages, because different compilers, and
different versions of compilers, generate different warnings and
there's no way we can know what they will be, when we release the

We enable -Werror for our internal development builds ("maintainer
builds" in GNU Make) and we fix all warnings there.

I personally recommend you do the same (don't enable -Werror, unless
you're creating a developer build of GNU Make).  But if you're
committed to finding a way to fix this warning that's fine too!
