Hmm, then this is not the current version of the binutils ld.
Maybe there are some changes in the current (CVS) binutils (ld)?

At least the auto-import feature is included there for a while now.

Please can you try the ld from the current Cygwin release so we'll see
if it is the same 'problem' there.
And can someone verify if it is a problem at all?
