I have only tested this with the mingw cross compiler on Debian (gcc
4.2.1-sjlj and 4.4.1), but it should also work with mingw on xp:

  ./configure --with-winapi=wmme,asio --with-asiodir=/your/path/to/asiosdk2

where asiosdk2 is the top level directory contained in asiosdk2.2.zip:

  % ls /your/path/to/asiosdk2
  asio  changes.txt  common  driver  host  mac.sea.hqx  readme.txt

And in these messages there is some info on how to cross compile
PortAudio for win32 on Debian, if that's useful:
