Yeah, and we can kiss that pesky "UNIX emulation" claim of cygwin's
goodbye, too. Somehow, I don't think that you'll find many library
files in /usr/lib/cygwin on, say, HP/UX, Linux, Tru64, etc.
This method solves a "problem" for -mno-cygwin at the expense of
impacting many other packages.
I agree that the print-search-dirs should work correctly and even suggested
this in the libtools forum. I agree that --dll-search-prefix=cyg should
not be activated when the user specifies -mno-cygwin.
I've made the appropriate change to my version of gcc but I don't think
that this warrants a new release.
We will not be moving .a files to /usr/lib/cygwin, so please lets not
even discuss this.
