I use wxWidgets from trunk and MinGW latest updates with GCC 4.7 (default installation with mingw-get) without problems, with or without debug mode.

My apps are working with GCC 4.7 without modifications.

I don't use optimizations flags, only -Wall.

Is there a possible problem on your application code?

%R is the configuration macro you want; it represents the effective root
directory of the mingw-get installation tree -- i.e. the immediate
parent of the "bin" directory in which mingw-get.exe resides -- but the
macro name is case-sensitive.

With all mingw-get releases to date, yes.

Note that this implies having a separate mingw-get installation
associated with each independent MinGW installation.  In a future
release, I plan to add a capability for managing multiple independent
MinGW and/or MSYS installations from a single mingw-get installation,
via "system-map" specifications in the profile.xml file, but I'm not
making any promises as to when I'll get the details worked out.

If you are using the separate installations approach, you might consider
symlink/junction sharing of the %R/var/cache directory among them all,
to avoid repeated downloads of common packages.
