Further on my tests concerning c++ and .cc files and this may help you
Chris as far as what is and is not the concern of cygwin and therefore
you and the rest of the developers. Maybe the problem I found is the way
it is supposed to work since the very problem I had was described in
Mumit's mno-cyginw-howto document.
He describes the instance and advises getting the headers and the libs
and then he states:
- untar the distribution under a directory, say /usr/local/mingw. This
will create a lib directory containing the target libraries and include
directory containing target headers (currently the only header needed is
- Add the -I/usr/local/mingw/include to all compilation when using the
-mno-cygwin option so that the compiler looks there first.
- Add the -L/usr/local/mingw/lib to all your link commands when using
As soon as I adhered to the second and third bullet while doing my
compile and link then all went smoothly. Yes, it would be nice if
-mno-cygwin did all this but it is spelled out as working this way in
Mumit's very own document.
