There's a lesson here for both of us, I think :-)
Your patches do things which are to me _quite_ mysterious, as in I
stared at them and couldn't work out what they were for. I think this
is because you described your goal, but not how you were getting there.
As I described, CodeSourcery already builds this way regularly:

So since we didn't encounter any of these bugs you've described, I
assumed you were doing something different. I apologize.
I'm not familiar with our linux-linux-mingw process, but I don't see
any reason it should be fundamentally different from this. Except,
doh, it appears we only build the compiler and not the runtime from
scratch :-( No wonder I was confused.
