Hi Partha,
  It's always worthwhile reporting build issues! Especially because you are using a buildsystem that not many people use. So it may take a long time before your error is fixed, and by then the fix may not be so obvious anymore.

It's great you've succeeded in building on Win 8.1 64-bit using gcc 4.8.1 and MinGW, with all the dependencies that we require. Could you write up a document on our wiki on how you did that? This would be a great great help after our release when we are going to upgrade our Windows default compiler. Thank you very much.

Is it worthwhile reporting building issues against the latest launchpad (thanks to Josh Andler for pointing it out to me) tarballs or simply wait for the next revision hoping it's fixed?

For example, while build revision 13270, I encountered this error:

2geom/toposweep.cpp: In member function 'Geom::TopoGraph::Edge Geom::TopoGraph::remove_edge(unsigned int, unsigned int)':
