And what is that?  http://www.mingw.org/ suggests that the latest
snapshot contains gcc-2.95.3-20010608, an older development snapshot is
gcc-2.95.2-1, and the only mention of a release is gcc-2.95.2.

The current code works with gcc-2.95.2 and requires changes for
gcc-2.95.2-1.  I don't know about the latest snapshot.

What is needed is some patches based on the version of the compiler.
I'm sure we would all be grateful if you were able to put that together.
