D.gnu - MinGW GCC 4.8 with GDC
I got GDC working with GCC 4.8 on MinGW. You can find it at https://bitbucket.org/goshawk/gdc/downloads/GCC-4.8-MinGW-GDC-.7z A couple of notable things. It's ALPHA quality. If it works, you're lucky. You'll find regressions. The patches required to fix some of the past bugs haven't been transferred yet. It also fails the following DMD testsuite tests. a20 argufilem bitops bug9010 constfold cov2 ctorpowtests eh hello-profile nested sdtor sieve template9 test23 test34 test36 test4 test42 testdstress testmodule testsafe testsocket testthread variadic xtest46 ddoc12 inlineheader inlinexheader line Currently, there is no build script. You'll need to recompile all dependencies manually. It's standalone. It is no longer required to have TDM or any other variant of MinGW installed prior. This increases the size of the package. Also, there's no optimization flags being used. So everything is bigger as well. It's only 32-bit. 64-bit forthcoming. README / Build instructions --------------------------- For Phobos licensing see phobolicense.txt. For GDC licensing see gpl.txt. Installation: This is a self contained MinGW release. Extract GDC folder to directory of choice. Building: ** Deviating from the versions specified may cause intended consequences. ie: Build failures, random crashes ** Ensure fstab as the following entry. Substitute C: for drive of choice(Should work) C:/crossdev /crossdev Download the following packages: binutils-2.23.1.tar.gz cloog-0.18.0.tar.gz gcc-4.8-20130303.tar.bz2 gmp-4.3.2.tar.bz2 isl-0.11.1.tar.bz2 mingwrt-3.20-mingw32-src.tar.gz mpc-1.0.1.tar.gz mpfr-3.1.1.tar.bz2 w32api-3.17-2-mingw32-src.tar.lzma Clone GDC. The checkout version is what I have the patches will properly compile. git clone https://github.com/D-Programming-GDC/GDC.git git checkout 166e02c2e99c3f6926513bb617593f24b7f4456f Extract the download files to a directory called src.

Forgot GIT instructions. For GDC, you can clone the Master branch. You'll have to manually specify which commit. git clone https://github.com/D-Programming-GDC/GDC.git git checkout 166e02c2e99c3f6926513bb617593f24b7f4456f Apply patch mingw-gdc.patch

Which version of MinGW did you use for compilation? TDM/MinGW-w64 or something else? I consider MinGW-builds (http://sourceforge.net/projects/mingwbuilds/) is the best MinGW pack.

and includes the MSYS environment required to build GCC.
