That's weird... why does NLS have anything to do with zip-compressed
debug info? Or do they both use zlib and somebody just forgot to update
the configure script?

A cygcheck on 'ld' shows cyggcc_s-1.dll is pulled in as a result of a

perhaps another tool from the package pulls that one in.
I found out that the needed dllÂs depend on the .\configure I do, is
way to find out what options were used makeing binutils last time out
I tried searching a list where I can maybe find info about what cygwin
is used for what function in binutils.
I suspect that --disable-nls would remove the dependency on libintl, but
I don't know what would pull in libz.
That'll probably be the support for zip-compressed debug info sections that
was added to the mainline sources around this time last year. It can be
disabled by passing "--with-zlib=no" to configure, or apparently also as a
side-effect of "--disable-nls" (according to a quick reading of the configure
scripts, I haven't tested.)
