Once I figured out how to go around the firewall here and do the cvs 
checkout on "Sept-2013" newlib (set env. var. CVSROOT) I thought it was 
going to work. However, my old version of mingw32 on fedora f14 seg 
faults when compiling gcc/var-tracking.c:

../../gcc-4.8.1/gcc/var-tracking.c: In function 'void 
add_stores(rtx_def*, const rtx_def*, void*)':
../../gcc-4.8.1/gcc/var-tracking.c:5782:1: internal compiler error: 
Segmentation fault

$ i686-pc-mingw32-g++ --version
i686-pc-mingw32-g++ (GCC) 4.5.0 20100414 (Fedora MinGW 4.5.0-1.fc14)
(Yes, it is using g++ to compile this.)

I will try this on the f16 version of i686-pc-mingw32-g++ later.

One other thing that I've seen is that you have to have python-devel 
installed. Without this, the gdb build also fails. This isn't found by 
the source-builder/sb-check.
It appears all "gdb configure" is looking for is Python.h but the error 
it prints sound like you don't have python installed, or that you have 
the wrong version.
