The VS compiler supports building 64-bit targets on 32-bit Windows/cl.exe but at some point along the jdk build process the newly built bin\java.exe is being used and that should fail on your 32-bit OS.

But so far all our cross-compiling of this form has been on linux and only tested for building 32-bit on a 64-bit host.
