To the devlibs gurus: what is the status of GTK3 devlibs and, can we 
try and make them compatible with the latest TDM-GCC? It'd be nice to be 
able to use the latest gcc so we can use more C++11 in the future.

The latest Opensuse 13.1 cross-compiled libs are compiled with gcc-4.8.1. I'm currently updating the GTK3 devlibs (note despite the name, you can also use it with GTK2) so that we can test the latest updates and compile with TDM-GCC 4.8.1. I'll let you know when it's done (it requires some extra steps such as creating a specific build.xml file, modifying some headers, compiling some libs not in Opensuse repo...).

Great, thanks. Building Inkscape with 4.8.1 required some funny name clashes, but in the end I found that it was caused by devlibs/include/pthread.h taking priority over tdm-gcc's own pthread.h. This meant that the huge windows.h was included, completely fouling up the namespace. Removing pthread.h from the devlibs improved things a lot, but I have not yet reverted all name changes I did, to see if they no longer crash.

If you get a compile error in src/graphlayout.cpp on this line
   connectors.insert<GSListConstIterator<SPItem *> >(connectors.end(),nlist,NULL);
you can try changing it to
    connectors.insert<GSListIterator<SPItem *> >(connectors.end(),nlist,NULL);
 which solved the internal-compiler-error for me. (seems like a bug in the stdlibc++?)

Advice: first update all to work with gcc 4.8.1, then afterwards we can try to use Dwarf2 instead of SJLJ exception handling.
