If you care more about download speed than compiler quality, then more
power to you ;-) What you found is gcc-2.8.x, which is notoriously buggy
on x86-win32, and there've been at least 4 releases of egcs series since
then containing hundreds of bug fixes.

See http://www.xraylith.wisc.edu/~khan/software/gnu-win32/ for gory
details and a list of mirror sites.

You can use egcs-1.1.2, or wait for gcc-2.95 ("any day now"). Or, of
course keep on using gcc-2.8.1.

Regards,
Mumit
