patience.  cgf is the maintainer for binutils on cygwin, but I'm sure he 
has his hands full getting ready for the imminent 1.3.19 cygwin kernel 
release.

BTW, Danny reported a problem with Fabrizio Gennari's "create an export 
section for .exe's" patch and relocatable linking.  Danny sent privately 
a modified version that corrects the problem, but like Fabrizio's 
original version we are awaiting an FSF release from Fabrizio. [Danny, 
you didn't copy binutils with that patch; was that an oversight?]

(I'd bet cgf is delaying a cygwin release of binutils for Fabrizio's 
release, hoping to get this functionality "in", too)
