Secondly,thanks for your forgiveness and patience.

I'm building against mingwrt-5.0 preview.  I take the workaround and build
the gcc compiler successfully. 
I have learned a lot from the building and your instructions. I mean it, not
just polite!

I wanna DIY gcc compiler. I want to use MinGW to build window-hosted ARM
toolchains. There are some known out-of-box tools  or windows installer, but
I think DIY at source level maybe more useful to me. At first, I need to
learn how to build the compiler from scratch. Am I take a hard way? Any
