As he hasn't released TK yet I used your version.

I am using my own MSYS installation with some of your releases.

Anyway, the next step is going to start using GCC 4.21 built MSYS and 
see how that works. Before that I am going build a bootstrapped version 
of GCC 4.21 and see if the results are improved at all although I 
seriously doubt that.

By the way, if you want to build any more recent version of GCC the heap 
size of MSYS has to be increased at least to 512 megabytes!
