Well, making mozilla win32 build be built with gcc was in the Bugzilla bug report for a long time, it goes way back to around 10,000 or 13,000, something around that. Then the bug report was closed a couple of months ago since there was a need to buried a lengthly bug report since GCC/Mwing start working. Then a couple of new bug report was filed related to this along the way. It have been a work in progress but it's ready for anyone to build it or hack into it.
