  Right, the problem is that these days GCC uses symlinks to choose between
gcc-3 and gcc-4 according to the user's preferences, using the alternatives
system (see /usr/share/doc/alternatives/README).  This is a problem when
launching the compiler from a native windows application, because windows
doesn't understand cygwin symlinks.

  The solution is to adjust the preferences in your IDE, so that it uses
"gcc-3.exe" or "gcc-4.exe" (at your choice) directly, rather than trying to
use the "gcc.exe" symlink.
