Subject: Re: GCC -mno-cygwin vs mingw32-gcc cross environment.

Note I'm not a developer but compile a few projects under Cygwin and
mingw32.
I may be in the minority but I recently started using the -mno-cygwin switch
following intructions on Cygwin mailing list since it currently has
advantage of GCC 2.95.3 and find  it works better than recent native mingw32
tools.
I don't mean to insult mingw developers but recent native mingw32 tools
really seem to be lagging behind and often seem to have problems in updates
(Like unstable shared libs, missing make, GCC unable to find _G_config.h)
which can waste time. Also not all mingw32 projects use configure for win32
builds.
I think a small package addition like ming32 extras which Danny Smith
provided would be easier.
