There was a branch for Cygwin/MinGW at version 3.3.1/3.3.2,
(called cygming33x), it includes some MinGW exclusive fixes, some
backported patches from HEAD and some MinGW/Cygwin specials to
enable the Cygwin gcc version to use the Windows API and produce
Cygwin independant binaries (-mno-cygwin and -mwin32 switches).

This branch is also the version which the latest release of gcc for
Cygwin (3.3.1-3) is based on.

3.4.0: the first build finished, but I got nearly 900 FAILS for the
libjava testsuite, every following build of libjava even failed to
finish with linking errors when building jv-convert.exe with a longer
list of undefined references.  As I tried to build from vanilla
3.4.0 sources because I thought, some of the MinGW/Cygwin exclusive
extensions may have broken I saw the 900 FAILS which is about 10
times more FAIL than you reported.

3.3.3/3.3.4: I tried to build 3.3.3 instead of 3.4.0, now I got this
error which was reported to be fixed somewhere in 2002:

To all;

Well I'v tried to compile GCC 3.4.0. My results are given for two machines
with Win2000 and the latest version of Cygwin with gcc-3.3.1.

  My home computer, AMD 2100+. No problems. Ada didn't compile correctly
but that's probably my fault.
  My work computer, Intel 800Mhz. Problems. See below.

Configure was vanilla flavored. If I remember, something like

I'd like to help and (most particularly) I'd like to find out what to do
and where to find what to do.
