Which main-xxx's and makefiles can I test with Cygwin or MinGW?

Right now the biggest problem I have is that AFAIK, I can only test the windows version of NPP. It looks like Cygwin and/or MinGW have some sort of support for x-11 or sdl. Is it possible for me to compile and play Angband using different main-xxx besides main-win.c, using a Linux shell in windows?

Native MingW32 can also manage a curses build using PDCurses. I haven't tested SDL, but think this is possible.
Zaiband: end the "I shouldn't have survived that" experience. V3.0.6 fork on Hg.
Zaiband 3.0.10 ETA Mar. 7 2011 (Yes, schedule slipped. Latest testing indicates not enough assert() calls to allow release.)
Z.C++: pre-alpha C/C++ compiler system (usable preprocessor). Also on Hg. Z.C++ 0.0.10 ETA December 31 2011

If you have a modern machine, a valid option for testing Linux builds is a virtualization environment. You can't really be sure that a build tested with Mingw32 won't cause problem when you compile it on the real thing. A minimal xubuntu install + Virtualbox shouldn't take more space than a movie on your hard disk.
