The cygwin distribution of mingw puts the support dlls in their own
directories. You must act yourself to get them on PATH. This is a
consequence of their not being cygwin compilers and giving you a mongrel
combination of cygwin and Windows setup. However, cygwin provides useful
tools like find and export:
The old -mno-cygwin yielded a standalone executable that I could give to
a colleague and it would "just work" on a Windows machine without
cygwin. It appears that now one must bundle at least one dll. From a
licensing standpoint, are these dll's any different from cygwin1.dll?
Can they be distributed freely without bundling the source code? If not,
I might as well forget about mingw and just supply cygwin1.dll.
Seems off-topic here. Does http://www.mingw.org/license begin to answer
your question? How about the recent suggestion of -static?
