Hmm, interesting. Because for native builds for mingw (and mingw-w64) 
using --with-sysroot and --prefix, I get the failure "CreateProcess". 
Could it be that it is related to the Vista64 OS (and XP64) I am using, or 
is more reasoned by the pex_win32.c implementation?
Because the variant via execpe worked pretty well.
