Ok, I've rebuilt and confirmed that a link of gdb.exe now works.

Attempting to rebuild the Cygwin DLL (winsup/cygwin) or any C++
utilities in winsup/utils seems to fail.

So, it looks like a c++ issue, maybe?  I rebuilt the entire toolchain
with a very recent gcc + binutils + ld + gas and the link step failed.
If I attempt to do the final link with an older toolchain, it works

So, it seems like ld or maybe collect2 (?) is the culprit?
