Building R under gcc 3.4.5 on Windows will no longer be supported as from R 2.7.0. The default settings in the trunk (R-devel) are for the new version of Rtools,


in which gcc is 4.2.1. This also contains gcc-sjlj.exe, so can be used to build R 2.6.x as well. It will become the default Rtools.exe in due course.
