I've got gcc 2.95.3-1 ready to go. It seems to work ok.
I've had a private discussion with DJ about the affect of -mwin32. We
both feel that the windows header files should be included regardless of
whether this switch is included or not. I think that Chuck Wilson also
persuasively argued this point.
If we don't do this, then there are a lot of gratuitous changes required
for a lot of configurations. I've had to change four or five directories
on sources.redhat.com alone.
So, while I appreciate all of the work that Robert Collins is doing to get
things working in autoconf, I've come to believe that the marginal benefits
of not including /usr/include/w32api outweigh the drawbacks.
So, unless someone has a strong objection, the default for gcc 2.95.3-1,
gcc 3.0, and gcc 3.1 will be to include /usr/include/w32api.
I'll wait a couple of days to see if anyone has any strong objections
before I release the new version of gcc.
