Re: GCC linker problem since last cygwin update

Hi Larry,
I would suggest you start by reading and following the problem

Ok, I will
In particular, you want to look closely at whether you're actually
Cygwin's tools. Your paths look suspect to me.

You are right. The compiler/linker that I'm using are not part of cygwin but I think that I need cygwin since the compiler is based on gcc and my OS is Windows. cygwin is somehow involved in my problem since '/cygwin/c' is displayed in the error message but my cygwin knowledge is big enough to fully understand the interaction between my compiler and cygwin. All I know is that it was working fine few minutes before my upgrade that included

cygwin DLL (1.5.20-1), coreutils (5.97-1) and binutils (20060709-1)

(My novice instinct makes me suspect these modules...)

and right after it was not working anymore.

I'd recommend looking at your paths then.  You can also try running
from a Cygwin shell.  I'd recommedn using POSIX paths as well.  Beyond
that, I can't make any more detailed recommendations with the
information you've provided so far.
