Welcome! :-)

I'd like to contribute some work to Haiku, however have problems with
compiling the sources.
After having checked out the latest sources into a fresh Alpha 1 R1
installation I get the error message
that my gcc is not at the latest version.
However, being a Windows developer I don't have a clue how to update to
the new gcc.

Although my first "Hello World!" window was compiled successfully using
Paladin,
compiling the StyledEdit failed.
I'd like to face the Ticket #5535 (StyledEdit Enhancement).
So, do you have a hint?
The most easy solution would be to grab a nightly (gcc2/gcc4, same as the
alpha1) and install that on top of your installation. (This will only
replace the system folder, and merge the rest of folders. Perhaps remove
/boot/develop before installing the nightly on top.) It contains an updated
GCC package. Alternatively, you could hack the configure script to accept
your gcc version, there haven't really been any changes to GCC that would
require the new version.

Well, hacking the configure scripts worked just fine! Thanks!
However, executing the binary raises the error message: "Could not open StyledEdit (Missing libraries: liblocale.so)." Copying the library from its original location to the StyledEdit folder did not help.
I suppose there should be a dedicated location for such libs...
Or is it a debug-release inconsistency?
Need a hint again :)
Thank you in advance!
