That's not true - see http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/summary.html where 
it says they are all compiled with MinGW and gcc. I've compiled GDAL 
against them and had no problems.

But no, it's not a race! :) I've mean meaning to make the binaries 
available for two months now and it just seemed like a good time to 
finally do it.

Not a bad idea; am looking into it (to host the source code, just to 
keep things legal...)
