Hello ports;

Hello Coleman Kane,

I'd like thank you for your work. I installed this version of mingw32-gcc. 
Until now I've not any problem; I's a great port.
The only problem was with the mingw32-binutils port (it was broken for
size mismatch), but I committed a little patch.
Thank you very match.

Bye by JM
