I come from a DJGPP background (well in the GCC world) so I appreciate
the hard work too.  The compiler is stable, produces good code and the
package is a complete win32 suite :-)

One complaint:  Making dlls should be simplified like in LCC-Win32 ...

lcc -dll -entry MyDllMain myobj1.obj myobj2.obj -o mydll.dll

A util like that (i.e gccdll or something :-)) would be handy.

For my upcoming Peekboo V3.00 program (open source freeware crypto
program) I will use CygWin because it is a better compiler then MSVC (I
may use MSVC to make the resources though....)

Good work guys and gals,
