Yes, I also succeeded to build GCC 3.4.4 for MSYS (C and C++), by using 
the Cygwin patches found on the Cygwin source package for GCC 3.4.4. I 
also took the chance to update binutils as well.

Lately, I am focusing on creating suitable source packages (original 
sources + cygwin patches + msys patches + build script). I plan to offer 
them as an optional add-ons to the msysDVLPR environment.

The compiler is able to bootstrap itself, so there is a good chance it 
is really fully functional.

I didn't do it this way. I just renamed some existing cygwin-named files 
on the same directory on GCC 3.4.4.

This, I wasn't able to do. With my self-built GCC 3.4.4, the dll is 
built, but existing MSYS applications just exit immediately when run. I 
will try your suggestion of using the GCC 3.2.3 on Phoenix site.
