Description : Cross-binutils for Win32 and Win64 using MinGW-w64
MinGW-w64 provides a development and runtime environment for 32- and
64-bit Windows applications using the GNU Compiler Collection (gcc).
This package contains the toolchain binutils.
I'm thinking of packaging this in relation to
http://bugs.debian.org/594371, my ITA for mingw-w64, because MinGW-w64
has an official set of triplets now so the existing mingw32-binutils
won't work. Since MinGW32 (now simply MinGW) is not MinGW-w64, it
seems preferable to have a different set of packages. MinGW-w64 itself
is useful in Debian notably because it will allow packaging newer
versions of Wine.
The package uses the existing binutils-source package; the packaging
work is available at
