RE: gfortran, lapack, and cygwin [SOLVED]
Thanks everyone for replying. The liblapack-devel was definitely key and
worked perfectly! Yay lapack!
P.S. I will remember that naming tidbit in the future, David. I forgot that

You need to install the development library liblapack-devel. This
provides /usr/lib/liblapack.dll.a and /usr/lib/libblas.dll.a, which are
required to link applications that use the dynamic libraries
cyglapack.dll and cygblas.dll.
It also provides /usr/lib/liblapack.a and /usr/lib/libblas.a, which are
used if you link statically.
You need to link the BLAS routines by adding -lblas AFTER -llapack
gfortran mytest.f90 -o mytest -llapack -lblas
PS: Bad practice to name a binary "test" on cygwin or any unix system,
as there is a utility and also a bash builtin function with this name.
