I agree with Chris here. IMO, gcc-mingw is a cross-compiler targeting the
"mingw architecture". I have seen packages on Linux named "gcc-<arch>",
so I think gcc-mingw is more appropriate (where "gcc" alone assumes
"gcc-cygwin", or even "gcc-i686-pc-cygwin").
I agree partly. I don't think that the cross compiler for mingw should
get an shortened name as "gcc-mingw" but only a full targeted name as
"gcc-i686-pc-mingw32" as for any other cross compiler.
Don't you mean i686-pc-mingw32-gcc?
