The user guide states that it is possible to generate an SDK for Windows with the augmented with the toolchains. But not only this does not work from a Linux host but it is also not supported:

See current description:
# Windows SDK ancilliary settings. If EXPORT_SYSROOT_HOSTS (named for backwards
# compatability with WB) contains a space-seperated token 'x86-win32', a second
# SDK archive will be constructed by normalizing the Linux SDK for Win32 as
# described above, and will be augmented with Win32 toolchain binaries.
# EXPORT_SYSROOT_HOSTS is expected to be set as an environment variable by WB.
# The variable TOOLCHAIN_WIN32_DIR can be set to point to the base directory
# of the Windows win32 toolchain directory hierarchy
# (e.g. ${WRL_TOP_BUILD_DIR}/layers/wr-toolchain/<vvvv-build>-other)
# if it is not installed as a peer to the normal toolchain layer
# TOOLCHAIN_WIN32_DIR is not currently imported from environment variables.
EXPORT_SYSROOT_HOSTS ?= "x86-linux2 "

Steps to Reproduce

from a common_pc project under Ubuntu 14.04
$ make export-sdk
change the EXPORT_SYSROOT_HOSTS variable to "x86-win32"
install the .zip file under windows
there is no toolchain
