For Win32, I personally use a tool called "CvsNT" (setting env var CVSUSEUNIXLF=1).
To apply patches, I personally use Cygwin "patch -p1 -i <patchfile>".

Among my patches, You, I think, really need one (or two) of my following patches:
- fixing GC lib compilation issues for WinCE;
- removing the need for libatomic_ops on Windows (if neither parallel nor has DllMain).

At total, today I'm planning to post 3 libatomic_ops patches and 3-5 patches for GC.

I'm also planning (in, say, 2 weeks) to release a snapshot tar-ball containing CVS + pending fixes/improvements - but You're not going to wait so long, right? ;)
