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 [1]

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 
(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).
