Is gcc 3 really necessary for Cog? “yes” clearly
is a proper answer, but last year, as I had to fiddle
with the Self VM and make it compile, even Old gcc4
were a pain.
Ian apparently has done some tweaks to the build system
for the win32 branch. It also uses MSYS and MinGW but
probably more recent gcc'en (but I'm not sure).
Just out of curiosity, have you sync'ed the cog-branch
platform dir after the initial branching?
Please do not regard me as a show stopper or „Spaßbremse“,
but I figure, that the entry barrier to work with the
Squeak VM or Cog is quite high, even if you don't want
touch the interpreter/jit at all. We should make it
I think Mariano did a good job for an introduction
to building a Squeak/Cog VM, But his 2nd-level
tool-chain (sources from gitorious+CMake via CMakeVMMaker)
seems vastly different from the current Makefile-based
approach, but apparently, the CMake toolchain can make use
of more recent compilers.
Where are we headed?
 I would call the MSYS+MinGW tool-chain 1st level in this case
