I always have trouble understanding the fine differences between
Cygwin's gcc (uses probably pristine gcc source with Cygwin's
POSIX layer) and mingw (a real port to Windows?). I really wonder why
porting attempts to Windows are not already part of gcc source ...

And via script?

I use gdb's command line interface and understand you :-) I suggest you
try out Eclipse together with the CDT (C/C++) module. CDT 4.0 made a big
progress, it is fully graphical, cross platform, ... IDE. It's really great.
It doesn't always work properly with a free Java implementation as found
in many Linux distributions but now that Java is relicensed to GPL there
will be a lot of progress.

The last time I indexed Boost trunk I got only a single parser exception
(which I reported of course). So jumping to a definition of a class, and
other code navigation works quite good (but not yet perfect).
