I suspect that the problem is a change in the way that the MSVCRT
function _access() handles the X_OK mode. In earlier versions of MSVCRT
passing X_OK to access was the same as passing F_OK -- the mode was
just ignored. Now, however this result in an error return (invalid
param value). GCC calls access to determine relative prefix of cc1.exe
(ie, the relative path from gcc.exe). Hence the gcc error message.
To fix: gcc driver needs to be recompiled with a patch to avoid use of
X_OK in call to access.
I'll upload a new gcc.exe driver for 3.4.5 ASAP unless someone beats me
