Native makefiles for mingw on win32?

I’m sorry if this has come up already, but I’ve searched and haven’t found any
information on it. Are there any ports of makefiles to native mingw on win32?
I’ve read the instructions on setting up a cross platform environment from
cygwin to win32, but I would like to try native makefiles (using the win32
native versions of make and gcc, etc). If there aren’t any yet, is there any
effort to port them? Last, would anyone else find this helpful, or do you
generally think it’s a bad idea? Personally I’d like to be able to use this
library without having to use cross platform and ‘./configure’. Any comments
welcome, I love the idea behind SDL and I’m just looking into the why’s behind
what it is now. Thanks.
