  It's ok. The catalog file is used for overriding standard exceptions
what() messages (i.e. to have localized messages). On MinGW (as well as on
entire Windows) stdcxx doesn't using, but using rwstderr.dll instead.
Actually if you're fine with english messages, you don't need rwstderr.{cat|dll}
because of the english messages are hardcoded in library sources.

  On Windows gencat.exe acceps rwstderr.rc file and produces rwstderr.dll file.
