completely unable to cross-build gdc for mingw32

I have in the last few days made about a dozen of attempts to cross-build GDC's SVN version on GCC 4.1.2, targetting mingw32.

I have been completely unable to get a working compiler out of this. All the compilers I tested were completely unable to handle exceptions (instead of traversing the stack, the test program, a simple "try throw new Exception(""); catch (Exception ex) { }", takes the easy way out and simply exits).

Did anybody here have the same problem, and can help me out? What's the secret ingredient required to make GDC cross-compiling work?

Any hints greatly appreciated,
