RE: GAWK 5.1.1: system error: code execution cannot proceed

I understand your quandary WRT the GCC library and sources.

However, your note at ezwinports does not say which libGCC  to get -- is it
the 9.2.0 version or the 8.2.0 version?  Or does it not matter which one?

Thank you very much for keeping windows ports of so many useful utilities
and libraries updated and available to us over the years (decades!).

I do have one other question to ask -- Why do you only use the 32-bit MinGW
and not MinGW64 to create these binaries?
