[vbox-dev] Is gcc 3.3.x really necessary to compile the recompiler?

     Hi Huihong,

 Recompiler should build OK with recent gcc. Gcc 3 limitation was 
applicable to 'old' recompiler, not relying on TCG for codegeneration. 
Windows 64-bit REM is built to ELF image, not  PE, thus  MinGW shall be 
of little help to you.
