cygwin (as in the base cygwin package) is missing /lib/libdl.a. The
install for the cygwin package should create a symlink with this name
that links to libcygwin.a in the same directory. Otherwise, builds for
a lot of different software packages are broken. Example is bash-3.1.
It will die at this point:
gcc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -DSHELL -I. -I.. -I../include -I../lib -g
-DCROSS_COMPILING -o mkbuiltins mkbuiltins.o -ldl
cannot find -ldl
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
Create the above symlink and everybody is happy, nobody has to die...
Note: It was a pain in the ass to figure out how to report and bug.
Would be nice if there was a bug database or something. Will be worse
if I have to subscribe to this list to post to it.
