on gentoo I used to create the install cd with these commands:
export ROS_PREFIX=i386-mingw32msvc
export PATH=$PATH:/opt/xmingw/bin
make bootcd

you should:
export ROS_PREFIX=i586-mingw32msvc and export PATH=$PATH:<folder of your 
mingw installation>


ps: you should read the beginning of the trunk/reactos/Makefile. it 
contains a lot of inromation.. like:
# Accepted environment variables:
#        This variable specifies the prefix of the MinGW installation. 
On Windows
#        a prefix is usually not needed, but on linux it is usually 
"mingw32". If
#        not present and no executable named "gcc" can be found, then 
the prefix is
#        assumed to be "mingw32". If your gcc is named i386-mingw32-gcc 
then set
#        ROS_PREFIX to i386-mingw32. Don't include the dash (-) before gcc.
