Good. I'll rely in the upcoming perl and parrot updates for 1.7 that 
-shared-libgcc will be the default for gcc-4. icu ditto.
I didn't add -shared-libgcc to my hints.

I hope that the frequent Vista unable to remap perl Cwd.dll errors will
be gone then, but I have not Vista to test.
Should I make a test release before to be tested on Vista?
