I don't have any experience with cmake but a quick google shows it's an
alternative to autotools basically.
You can get autotools to build cross / for other environments by using
--host= as described here
but that requires the cross toolchain to be installed on your unix box.
I did some work before about allowing it to be built under mingw, which
fits into this model; I can get mingw packages from Fedora repo for
example to build with Windows, and I am sure it'll be availble on Ubuntu
Have you considered going the mingw route and building the library for
Windows on Ubuntu too?
