Don't lump GCC and Binutils together.
The fact is, the Binutils version we're using since RosBE 1.0 is already
newer than the latest official version from GNU while we're 2 major and X
minor releases behind in terms of GCC.
Besides, our version from RosBE 1.0 is properly patched as I already
explained in my previous post. (read it for more details)
The version Daniel was suggesting for RosBE 1.3 is just the latest preview
from MinGW, which of course doesn't have our patch integrated. Furthermore,
it would have been just 3 months newer and there's not that much work going
on in the binutils tree.
