I am a pleased cygwin user since many years. It has always served me well as
a platform for easy cross-platform development.
However I recently found that GCC produced .EXEs that run on NT and w2000
but not on 98 & ME. Message produced on failing systems is "The
<file> file appears to be corrupt. Reinstall the file, and then try again."
And then "Windows can not run this file because it is in the wrong format."
This occurs with both cygwin and mingw compiles on both w2k and w98.
I have GCC 2.95.3-5, binutils 20011002-1, win32 1.5-1.
I am sure this problem did not exist about a month ago. I have definitely
upgraded cygwin and made a couple of changes to the software since then.
What kind of changes to my software could have cause this behaviour?
