I am working on native Windows builds of gcc and have
successfully built 5.3.0, 5.4.0, and 6.3.0, with my
MinGW installation using the current mingwrt and w32api.

After successfully building  6.3.0, I installed 6.3.0 to replace
the gcc 5.3.0 installed by the MinGW installer and successfully
built 6.3.0 again.

I then downloaded and installed the proposed version 5 releases
of mingwrt and w32api and tried the gcc 6.3.0 build again

It failed, with the crash of a program that is part of the Ada build 
system: xsinfo.exe, located in my build tree at


xsinfo almost completed successfully; Here are the last few
lines that it displayed in my msys window:

"Check for missing functions in body

Check Set procedures in body

Check for missing set procedures in body

All tests completed successfully, no errors detected

This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way.
Please contact the application's support team for more information."

The "unusual way" line also appeared in a Windows popup error message box.
I will supply more information later as I do more detective work to try to 
find the cause of the failure.
