Searching for gcc on Linux is not a good idea, you'll find the system one
not the mingw one. Searching for i686-w64-mingw32-gcc or
x86_64-w64-mingw32-gcc should work better, that is searching for:

  getTriple().getArchName()) + "-w64-mingw32-gcc"

Moreover, this should work on Windows as well, mingw-w64 distribution has
[i686|x86_64]-w64-mingw32-gcc.exe at the same location as gcc.exe. For this
you can unite the code for both Linux and Windows.

To continue supporting mingw.org, if this search fails, search for
