Path? what patch?
I'm right now trying to generate my linux->mingw gcc 2.95.2 cross
Do I've to apply some patch first??
My final target is having a mingw hosted powerpc cross-compiler, however
it seems to be a longer way to go than expected :(

Well, I can answer some of my own questions. You're right that many
components in Mumit's patch have not been applied to the gcc tree.
(Why not? It's been a year. Maybe they've only been rolled into the
development version which is heading for 3.0?)=20
However, the patch does not apply cleanly to 2.95.3-prerelease -- far
it. Dozens upon dozens of hunks are rejected. Some small parts of the=20
patch *have* been applied, apparently. A lot of this can be fixed by a
manual application process, but a few things look a little trickier.
I don't think I'm qualified to sort out the mess (though I can try, but
am not a gcc hacker), so I'm back where I started, asking the questions:
* Will mingw32 support gcc 2.95.3 any time soon? (No, I don't mean
* Can I accelerate this process by doing work myself, or by paying
else (in cash or beer or ...) to do this work?
* Is it easier to try to selectively apply the sjlj-exceptions patch
from 2.95.3 to the 2.95.2 source tree which *is* supported by mingw32?
* Is there some Master Documentation somewhere that I'm missing which
explains the current state of mingw32, how it relates to the various
versions of gcc (2.95.2 stable, 2.95.3 prerelease, various Cygwin
releases, development snapshots, ...), what patches are necessary,
The "ate my balls" bug in question is a showstopper for us (without it,
exceptions are pretty much worthless), and we rely on mingw32 to
code for Windows that isn't burdened by the cygwin nightmare.
