Is it possible to build GCC 4.1.1 from source using MingW.
If so, where can I find some info on how to do this?
I wish to try out variadic templates as recently posted on comp.std.c++.
This requires applying patches to GCC 4.1.1 and rebuilding.

It should be possible, but may not be easy. YMMV.

Ranjit Mathew recently posted a link to his site, either on this
list, or on mingw-msys. There he describes how he did it for GCJ;
please search the archives. IIRC, he reported the native build
to be so painfully slow, that he ended up using GNU/Linux to
cross-build his MinGW hosted compiler suite.
