compiling gcc snapshot on different platforms

Wed Feb 15 21:56:00 GMT 2006

(... quick thanks to all of the help I've received ...
     ... trying to keep my questions short ... )

I'm compiling gcc snapshot-4.1 (5 days old) on Linux and
OSX now.  I'll also ned to compile on Win2K.

What is the recommended initial (to bootstrap the bootstrap)
gcc recommended,  i.e. cygwin, mingw, some other native gcc compiler?

And, with the aim of using this snapshot on Win to compile
a swt/freetts app w/ gcj, are their particular options other
than those noted below that I should be using in that env.,
i.e. --enable-threads=win32 ?? any others??


and if it is of any use, I'd be willing to post the files
that come out of this, or a tarball of the compiled gcc env
for OSX, etc. if that would help anyone else.
