Requesting an updated gcc-mingw-g++ package to match gcc-g++-3.4.4-2 (PR24196)

I was running gcc-g++-3.4.4-1, and was running into the same problem of a std::string allocating memory in a different DLL described here:

So I update to 3.4.4-2, and yes it fixed the problem for the standard tools. However, it did not fix the problem for "-mno-cygwin" compile option specifying to link with the mingw libraries, and the now old, mingw specific, libstdc++.a. So, I need to upgrade my gcc-mingw-* packages to fix the problem, however they have not been updated to the latest version in the package repositories.

Could someone please upload matching gcc-mingw-* packages that contain the fix applied to 3.4.4-2?

Updated binary packages is of course the ideal. In the mean time, I attempted to build updated packages myself, however I found that the gcc-mingw-g++-20050522-1-src.tar.bz2 package does not meet the source package description described here:
As the supposed source tarball inside it does not contain source files. It only contains executables, libraries, and headers. It also contains an un-usable configure script, and no build script. This may be ignorance on my part as I've never built a cygwin package from source before, but I could not get it to do much with the files provided.

I've given up now that I need to download the proper gcc-g++ source package, apply the same patch applied to cygwin's 3.4.4-2 version, and attempt to compile it for gcc-mingw.

Search?Your way, your world, right now!
