Thanks Brian.

I am not sure I understand what you mean. What is the "requires" line? 
Where is it? Should binutils have been dowloaded automatically when I 
downloaded gcc-core?

When I look under Devel in setup.exe the binaries for binutils are 
checked but without any download date. "which as"  says "as" is not 
found. Can you tell me what I should have done? Did I do something wrong 
or is there perhaps a bug? Could it perhaps be because the downloader 
stalled? (Maybe because of slow download here.)

When I now clicked next, without checking any new pages the downloading 
did continue. I believed I started setup.exe and clicked continue 
before, but as far as I remember right now I dod not open Devel that time.

I think I can guess how this works now, but I am not quite sure and it 
is a bit confusing IMO.
