The binutils patches are necessary and cross-binutils builds without any
hassles for MinGW on Linux after these patches. You can just download
the latest patched binutils sources from:


The MinGW-specific GCC patches are desirable, but not necessary (for Java)
at all - it is quite simple to overcome any build issues that you
might face while building MinGW GCC for C/C++.

My 3.2 patches are now mostly unnecessary as almost all of these
changes have made it to CVS, except for a couple of JNI patches
and this crossed-native configury patch (Tom?):


(See http://gcc.gnu.org/onlinedocs/gccint/Configure-Terms.html for
configure terms like native, cross, crossed-native, etc.)

If you give it a try, I promise to help you out as much as I
possibly can with any issues that you might face.
