Just a HEADSUP for package maintainers who might want to try this: I 
installed this by clicking the Exp button in setup and choosing 
everything that seemed related to gcc.  This included binutils-2.25-2. 
It turns out that this test release is *not* related to the gcc-5 
release, and it has bugs that caused me problems.  So stick with 

[JonY, I can report the binutils-2.25-2 bug separately if you want 
details.  Briefly, I got errors when running 'nm -l' on some DLLs, on 
x86 only.]
