Yes and no ( see below)

Based on configure command I expect native build. I cannot understand
why is specified i686-pc-mingw32. May be in you environment native
compiler is i686-pc-mingw32-gcc.exe and gcc.exe is another compiler.
More important to reported case is use of LD_LIBRARY_PATH. So many
projects will set this environment variable but shared-path-variable is
platform(os) dependent. On windows it is only PATH .
As xmlsec use libtool dl-library and this library use own path variable
(LTDL_LIBRARY_PATH) and I prefer to use lt-variable in my linux->mingw
# set LTDL_LIBRARY_PATH so ltdl will find *.la files in build
# dir instead installed and will load dll from build tree
LTDL_LIBRARY_PATH="`winepath -w \`pwd\`/src/gcrypt`;$LTDL_LIBRARY_PATH"
make check ...
I lack time to test with relative paths and with ':' as path-separator.
If this work on windows may be xmlsec could be improved to set
LTDL_LIBRARY_PATH instead LD_LIBRARY_PATH to allow test to be executed
on more platforms.
Proposed change is to use following:
for i in $(XMLSEC_CRYPTO_LIST) ; do \
export LTDL_LIBRARY_PATH="src/$$i:$$LTDL_LIBRARY_PATH" ; \
done && \
Feedback is welcome .
