After testing I found that 4.9.3 worked for me, too. Interestingly 5.3.0 didn't: It seems that with 4.9.3 a condition in mingw/lib/gcc/mingw32/4.9.3/include/c++/bits/basic_string.h that prevents using stoi and to_string got left out, but they're back in 5.3.0. It's probably a bug.

But I've changed to use 4.9.3 anyway, and also fixed the PRId64 problem in gnc-backend-dbi.cpp.
