Using MinGW thru Cygwin to compile Gstreamer

I don't know about Cygwin, but I've been using just MinGW and it's Msys 
prompt. I don't really remember whether libxml2 comes with MinGW, but 
you can check it by browsing to MinGWs include/limxml2 folder. If it 
exists, you should have the library. If it doesn't, you can download the 
library's source and compile it with the usual ./configure / make method.
