As some of you already might know, with the upcoming release of Fedora
17, Fedora is switching its mingw toolchains from i686-pc-mingw32
to i686-w64-mingw32 and x86_64-w64-mingw32 
As this step has pretty massive impacts on the way I am building the
mingw toolchains, as an initial experiment, I have started to build
x86_64-w64-mingw32 -> rtems (64bit Windows)
ATM, they are available under ftp://ftp.rtems.org/pub/rtems/mingw64
(Whether this location will remain permanent is not clear yet).
I for one do not have access to 64bit Windows nor am I familar with
mingw-w64. Therefore, I'd ask all of those who are using RTEMS on
windows to test these packages*.
For the moment, the mingw32 toolchains are staying with Fedora's
i686-pc-mingw32, but will very likely have to switch to i686-w64-mingw32
when Fedora 16 will go EOL (in ca. 1/2 a year).
