Win32 cross compiler for AVR?

I'd like to use GCC to cross-compile C++ code for an AVR target. However,
I've read that GCC will only compile C, not C++ code for AVR targets. Is
this correct? (My host/build machine is running Cygwin under Windows 2000.)

I tried to build GCC a couple of weeks ago by following the FAQ,
with --host=i686-pc-cygwin --build=i686-pc-cygwin --target=avr. Binutils
configured and built OK, and I managed to configure gcc, but building it
eventually resulted in an error. I assumed this was due to the lack of C++
support for AVR, but I'm now wondering if I should try it again?... Should
following the steps in the FAQ be enough to get it working, or do I need to
do anything else as well?

Many thanks,
