If you install Cygwin normally the libuser32.a file is installed in a
directory which is automatically searched.
If that was not the case then you couldn't build any programs.
Despite other messages in this thread, I don't see anything here to
indicate that this has anything to do with -mno-cygwin. gcc finds
-luser32 properly whether you use -mno-cygwin or not.
