The mingw32 package exists for doing that. Here's the description in
synaptic (I found it by searching in synaptic for "cross compiler" in
"Description and Name"):

        Minimalist GNU win32 (cross) compiler
        A Linux hosted, win32 target, cross compiler for C/C++
        Freedom through obsolescence.  Those who still really need to
        can now build windows executables from the comfort of Debian.
        This package contains the C and C++ cross compilers.
