32 bit Virtual box build on x64 Windows dev host

Is it possible to build 32 bit Virtual box build (i am using 4.3.26 sources) on x64 Windows 7 development environment?
Can I just change the KBUILD_TARGET_ARCH to x86 and openssl lib paths to point to 32 bit libraries to accomplish this?
Or, do I need to download Mingw32 binaries and libraries and integrate them manually before running configure.vbs with appropriate option?

Moved to VirtualBox OSE forum: your question is not about your Windows Host, it's about an OSE build option.

No, I have never tried what you ask. I would have thought however that the compiler and linker can target any platform you like, from any reasonable host platform.

I am able to build 32 bit VBOx but I had to get the mingw32 to build it. Moreover, the windres that comes with gcc 3.3.3 core creates trouble in the build process. So, I had to manually change that to a newer version.
