Static version of Cygwin DLL?

Hi everybody,

thanks for all the posts. Now I understand that, even if there was a
libcygwin1.a, linking statically to it could bring me licensing problems. I
also learnt that, if I'm ok with dropping POSIX, I could use the -mno-cygwin
switch (in this case, I'd be Cygwin license-compliant, right?). I guess that
covers it all.

Thank you all for your time.
