there is a 32+64-bit gcc compiler chain circa 20110812 on http://sf.net/projects/mingw-w64
the 2 compilers are at

20110812 specifically is at

I suggest you use 20110812 if you use this compiler chain. it will require 2 DLL's:

instead of writing it all here, I decided to write a separate article on parallelizng builds/compiles on my web site. it is at

I also have an article at http://Jesusnjim.com/code/compilers/mingw.html
which shows you how to get the mingw and mingw-w64 compilers, how to use them, and gives you my wrapper.zip which contains the batch files for making programs compatible with vista/7/8, specifically, gw2.cmd. it also shows you information about microsoft's xml manifests, and how to put one in your mingw-built (or otherwise) executable. it is basically a windows resource of a specific type. I hope you find the information useful.

mingw-w64 is at version 4.7.0 at that point (date 20110812). the mingw-w64 buildbot needs to be fixed before a 4.7.1 or 4.8.0 compiler comes out for mingw-w64. when it gets fixed, new builds of the compiler (and compiler fixes) should be regular and nice. I think rubenv has a new personal build which may work.
