Like all other sets I know of they appear to lack g77 and so are inadequate to make R. (Also, their mingw-runtime is well outdated.)

The xmingw-build scripts now available on www.mingw.org make building a cross-compiler almost straightforward (although I suspect the important changes are to the source tarballs).
