this is just an info for other mantainers and users
As reported by David announcment
the current standard is "linked statically against libgcc".
I found a case where
is absolutely needed and
does not work.
With hdf5-1.6.8 in both cases the compilation is fine
but during "make check" if CC=gcc-4 is used
the test of I/O drivers crashes very bad and moreover
it cripples the underlying cygwin1.dll.
I need a restart to be able to perform again the test
with any version.
I suppose it is an exception handling issues, and it
applies to both 1.5 and 1.7 cygwin versions.
Currently I am rebuilding all my cygwin-1.7
packages with CC="gcc-4 -shared-libgcc"
and I have not yet found problems.
