What is the state of/reason for Cygwin/Mingw specific mods to official
gcc sources? I assume these mods will eventually make it in to the
official tree, right? What is the typical migration path?
I ask, because I am trying to do DWARF2 development work for Cygwin.
I thought that I should start with current gcc (3.2.2) and binutils
(22.214.171.124) sources (or CVS). But, I just ran into a double alignment ABI
breakage with the official gcc sources. I have applied the proper patch
locally to fix it, but I wonder why it has not been officially submitted
yet? I also wonder how many other gotcha's there are?
What should a Cygwin developer use as a base for binutils and gcc
