WK has posted several times to the list that the canonical supported build
system for Windows is a Linux-based cross-compile.

From other communication, Werner's configuration is based on Debian.

Most Linux distros are shipping some variant of GCC 4.2.x.

You may wish to compare CFLAGS and LDFLAGS. They're likely to have more
influence than compiler versions. You'll want to start with Werner's settings
and work from there.
