Thanks (but please read on ..!)

(i) My original problem occurred with gcc version 3.2. I downloaded MinGW-3.1.0-1.exe (as named in the Windows INSTALL file) and this gave me gcc version 3.2.3 *BUT* this gave me exactly the same problem.

(ii) I then downloaded MinGW-3.2.0-rc-3.exe (giving me gcc 3.4.2) and this did get me past arithmetic.c. [So presumably my headers are OK.] But this isn't yet a full release of gcc, is it?-- so if this particular gcc version is required, perhaps some mention is needed in the Windows INSTALL and in the release notes.

(iii) In any case, there was still a crash later on with 3.4.2. This looks unrelated but I am equally at a loss:

windres -i dllversion.rc -o dllversion.o gcc --shared -s -o vfonts.dll vfonts.def g_alab_her.o g_cntrlify.o g_fontdb.o g_her_glyph.o dllversion.o -L../../gnuw in32 -lR
mkdir -p ../../../modules
cp vfonts.dll ../../../modules/vfonts.dll cp unicode/iconv.dll ../../modules/
cp: cannot stat `unicode/iconv.dll': No such file or directory make[2]: *** [rmodules] Error 1
make[1]: *** [rbuild] Error 2
make: *** [all] Error 2
