Re: GCC 4.1.1

There is no "need" for this, but it would be nice to have all platforms
I'm trying to support on the same version.

I was able to compile and install GCC 4.1.1 with a plain ./configure &&
make && make install but I can't use the -mno-cygwin option.  I'm
assuming this is because I need the corresponding mingw32 package for
I went to the mingw web site and saw that gcc 3.5 was the latest

So am I stuck with gcc 3.4.5 if I want to be able to compile executables
for Windows that anybody (without a cygwin install) can run?

Unless you fell up to generating the mingw packages you need.  I'm unsure
(and didn't bother to go see if I could find this in the gcc release notes)
that -mno-cygwin has made it into the mainline.  That means the first step
to getting this to work is to port the Cygwin-specific support for it to
your Cygwin 4.1.1 version.  You may also want to review the email archives
for this list, the Mingw list, and the gcc list to get a better handle on
the issues with the 4.x series on Windows platforms, in case any of them
are of concern to you.
