It is built from a 6.3 release set of sources I fetched from a local GNU
mirror. If a release number of 6.3.1 exists then it is wrong and I have
made a mistake. The version number is 6.3-1 where the '-1' is the
version of the patch added to 6.3.

What is the difference ?

I would like to as I think some parts of the patch contain changes
suitable for GDB (struct environ, better abstraction for remote
transports (winsock support)), yet other parts of the patch are
questionable (readline should head to the readline maintainer, event
loop) and parts I have no idea about (Al Steven's W9x patch). This could
result in partial MinGW support in GDB with the need for an external
patch. This may not be such a good idea and something the GDB
maintainers may not like (a repeating "Why does MinGW not build ?"
question) unless a clear path to a solution exists.
Currently I have no time to progress the changes and rework if not
suitable and so do not wish to waste the GDB maintainers time.
