Arg.  Yes:

19:36:40 fred@peder:/home/cygwin/cygwin-1.3.10/linux-x-cygwin/usr
$ ls -l i686-pc-cygwin/bin/ld*
-rwxr-xr-x    3 fred     staff     1683668 Apr 22 19:15 i686-pc-cygwin/bin/ld-in-path-breaks-libtool

So, I'll recheck my expert advice to you that LD should be set, now
that I you helped me fix this issue:

    i686-pc-cygwin-gcc -print-prog-name=ld

[... goes and tests before mailing] and indeed, the setting of LD is
bogus.  I'm very sorry about this.  You may remove that addition.

It probably wasn't, because I set LD, (the wrong ld simply doesn't
work), but still.

It seems however, that gcc will only print the full path, if the
program (ld in this case) is not already in the path.
