I've never personally used configure.bat. I doubt if it even worked in
The usual way to build GCC for windows is either with Cygwin (or a similar
POSIX-ish environment, note that even Microsoft ships GCC with Interix) or

downloading and building the latter.
Unfortunately, windows support is not fully integrated into GCC. The
mingw team still distributes a patch set for 2.95.
