This question is mainly for those who maintain the
binary version of mingw:
I am trying to recompile the gcc (i.e. gcc, g++, and
g77) for mingw distribution. How to do this? Do you
usually use cygwin's gcc to compile, or mingw's own
Let me show you what I have:
- a working gcc version 2.95.3-6 (mingw distribution)
- a working cygwin environment
To make use the mingw gcc, I've set the mingw's path
to precede the cygwin's, so that cygwin tools wouldn't
be chosen in place of mingw's.
The main hurdle with using mingw's own gcc is that:
[a] mingw's gcc does not recognize POSIX-styled path
names. This can be aleviated easily.
[b] mingw's gcc does not recognize the (soft)links
that are made by the scripts.
How do you usually do it? Please help me. How does
MSYS help us in this respect? Right now I assume that
MSYS would still make the soft-links as the cygwin's
