Error message while installing gcc 6.3.0

David Gressett
I did a fresh install of MinGW on a Windows 7 computer.

I started by selecting everything in Basic Setup.

When I installed, I got a message box when the installer got to Fortran:

"Internal specification error. Can't get 'tarname' for non-release element <<unknown>>
Please report this to the package maintainer"

It doesn't seen to indicate a real problem. Once I had
finished selecting additional things to install and installed them, removing blockers
as documented in the instructions,  Fortran was installed

Thanks for testing it!

It isn't, but it appears disturbing, (with dependency tracing):

$ mingw-get install --trace=0x0200 gcc-fortran 2>&1 | tee 20170724.log

It is a bogus dependency, arising from the gymnastics involved in the
attempt to circumvent the legacy of gcc-4.8.1 package malformations.  
Note the version of libgfortran, for which mingw-get was attempting to
identify a provider; the correct dependency was resolved earlier, and
is subsequently installed.  Nonetheless, the bogus dependency is a bug,
so I will follow it up.
