Did you actually TRY THIS?
Cygwin was built with this compiler. I haven't seen anyone complaining
that Cygwin didn't operate on a "Pentium MMX".
If you are actually having some sort of problem, then post it here.
Otherwise, it appears that you are making incorrect assumptions about
the way that gcc operates.
