Not to presume to tell you what to do, but perhaps it might be prudent to
go ahead and use the gcc-3.2 branch instead.  If I read it correctly, they
are planning a gcc-3.2.1 release when the gcc-3.1.2 was supposed to be
released (and the webpage says GCC 3.1.2 release [Sep 15 2002]).  I
suppose it depends on how you look at it, but skipping to gcc-3.2 might
save some headaches in regards to YA C++ ABI change.  I suppose the mingw
people would have to do the same, so I guess if they aren't on board then
this can't be done.  It may not be the best idea to release a development
branch based version, but it may save many headaches in the future,
especially given the fickle nature of windows shared libraries.  Just my
2c on the situation...
