The webpage http://mingw.org/wiki/HOWTO_Install_the_MinGW_GCC_Compiler_Suite is very helpful to figure out which packages are required to install MinGW GCC 4.5. To this end, it includes the source code of a script called mingwdl.sh.

The current version of mingwdl.sh, however, has a few typos so it only downloads 10 out of 18 intended packages. The typos are all of the same kind, where a space should be replaced with a forward slash:

should be
LINK="http://www.mirrorservice.org/sites/download.sourceforge.net/pub/sourceforge/m/project/mi/mingw/MinGW/mpc/mpc-0.8.1-1"

LINK="http://www.mirrorservice.org/sites/download.sourceforge.net/pub/sourceforge/m/project/mi/mingw/MinGW mpfr/mpfr-2.4.1-1"
should be
