.... but anyone can easily find out for themselves, using the command "gcc
-mno-cygwin -print-search-dirs"  (and for interest's sake, compare it to the
output you get without -mno-cygwin).

  Hm.  Why should "gcc -mno-cygwin" be looking in /lib and /usr/lib, where
it's only likely to find cygwin libraries?  That looks a bit wrong to me....

Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
