You said that you tried linking libcygwin.a to libutil.a but that is
not necessarily going to work.

"the link still fails" provides almost zero useful information.

You certainly didn't get the same "cannot find -lutil" error message
when you tried this.

Since Corinna went to some effort to add libutil functionality to the
cygwin DLL a while ago and since I can't see any functions in
which are missing from cygwin1.dll, I don't see why this didn't work.
