I'm relaunching this under a slightly more sensical subject. There is
no new data here.

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.
