Any bug report would be useless on 64-bits with a broken gcc. For
example the gdiplus tests fail, so any app that would use gdiplus
would potentially be broken badly, as can be witnessed by the failing
tests. I believe it's better to downward refuse to build there, than
to trace down bugs that don't really exist. If that requires patching
and rebuilding gcc for wine only so be it. I'll try to get the gcc
guys to accept the patch in the meantime. :)
