mmended_compiler says you need to separately install GCC 3.3.1 and G++ 3.3.1
AFAIK that still works (although most people seem to be using 3.4.2 now)

Can you edit shlwapi.spec, remove the "-noname" from these lines:

25  stdcall -noname IsCharAlphaWrapW(long) user32.IsCharAlphaW
26  stdcall -noname IsCharUpperWrapW(long) user32.IsCharUpperW
27  stdcall -noname IsCharLowerWrapW(long) user32.IsCharLowerW
28  stdcall -noname IsCharAlphaNumericWrapW(long) user32.IsCharAlphaNumericW

and let us know if it compiles ok then? "older" binutils (before 2.15.94 I
think) have a problem with forwarding in combination with -noname.
