[cfe-dev] Clang on Windows targeting gcc requirements

For either the latest clang built from souce on Windows or a binary 
distribution of clang on Windows it appears that clang expects the 
supporting gcc include files and lib files to be in the hardcoded directory:


and follow the mingw directory structure.

1) Can this please be changed in the future so that some environment 
variable ( maybe CLANG_GCC ) can be set to the gcc installation rather 
than use a hardcoded path ?

2) Can clang be updated to support the mingw-64 directory structure and 
not just the mingw directory structure ? The mingw-64 distros seem now 
to be the preferred gcc distributions on Windows and support the latest 
versions of gcc.

Do I need to make these suggestions on the clang bug tracker for the 
suggestions to be seriously considered ?u
