This patch provides support for building GCC on native Windows (i.e.,
MinGW) as opposed to Cygwin.
One concern I have is the Ctrl-C support.
Presently Ctrl-C support is broken on all of GCC under MinGW.
Specifically, when you send a break from the console, it will the
toplevel gcc but not any invoked subprocesses. Does it make sense to
hack it into just collect2 when it doesn't work anywhere else?
Maybe Ctrl-C support should wait until someone implements it, in
general, for GCC? Whatever turns out to be the working Ctrl-C
implementation might be very different from what is being proposed in
Ctrl-C support, if added, probably would need to be involved with libiberty.
While I am not aware of anyone working on improving Ctrl-C, perhaps I
personally might be interested in fixing this now that its come up.
