Shall do, I think I put them in with the thought that updating gcc
would generally be done manually, and was sensitive to the support
library versions. I formed that opinion trying to get TDM 4.4.1 and
mingw-w64 to work, but I don't really think that's the case anymore.

The only problem I can imagine would be if they had different
checksums. I often create copies of pkg.mk files and haven't noticed
any problems with using the same download file.

I just tried a "make update" and am getting this error:

NEW      gcc  4.5.0 --> 4.4.4
NEW      gcc-gmp  4.3.0 --> 5.0.1
Makefile:205: *** Unable to update version number of package gcc-mpc.  Stop.

There isn't a log or any more details about the error.

The gcc version seems to be caused by 4.4.4 being later than 4.5.0.
It's the refutation to the counterproof of your assumption about
source repositories and release schemes ;)
