The gcc-4.4.x in my builds are heavily patched to catch up with
the target fixes etc. in gcc-4.5/4.6, _except_ for libstdc dll build:
If you want a shared libstdc++ you want gcc-4.5.x, otherwise 4.4.x
should be OK for most purposes should you choose using it.

Well, no, no problems compiling gmp-5.0.1. When I started doing
my personal builds, gmp-5.0 was not around and when it did come
around I didn't change my gcc-4.4 build scripts, that's all. As a
matter of fact, I use gmp-5.0.1 in my gcc-4.5 based personal builds.
