Hi Jon,

What will be left as prev? 5.4.0-2, or the last 4.9 build? Can you
help raise The
interprocedural analysis that was added for gcc 5 is deeply buggy on
mingw targets, resulting in miscompiling C++ libraries like LLVM.
This is keeping me on gcc 4 indefinitely until it gets fixed. I may
have to abandon gcc and switch to clang due to this, but there are
many libraries that have broken build systems that behave incorrectly
when you try to use clang on Windows.

I'll use time machine if that's my only way to keep getting gcc 4,
but this bug in gcc should really be fixed or it's going to start
showing up in cygwin-mingw-cross and msys2 packages.


Can you make 4.9 the previous version? Thanks.

Sorry, the files for 4.9.3-1 are no longer on sourceware.

I guess they got removed when you uploaded 5.3.0-3 (28/02/16)

Sorry, I guess you'll have to rebuild as gcc-4.9.3-2 and upload that, if this is really needed.
