I'm not sure how I did this since your changes are currently in my sources.
I did miss it though.  Sorry.

I have a new distribution ready to go.  I was waiting to see if I got everything
right but testing it on some internal guinea pigs.

Unfortunately, they don't use cygwin the way the rest of the net does.

A couple of questions:

1) Was the defaulting to -mno-win32 a noble but doomed experiment?

2) If we want to stick with -mno-win32 as the default, should gcc
   include /usr/include/w32api by default?  I really don't think that
   it should but I don't look forward to submitting changes to 
   the stuff in sources.redhat.com that breaks as a result.

3) Does anyone run this release of gcc as a cross compiler?  Corinna
   isn't able to do this but I'm not having any problems building it.

4) Is anyone going to checkin a libstdc++.a into winsup/mingw so that I
   can add this to the distribution?

If we can clarify the above points, I'll make a gcc-2.95.2-8 release.
