ddd-3.2.98 configure problem on cygwin (sorry for previous - no subject)

 This is really DDD issue, which needs to be fixed.  The order
of libraries in your Makefiles, generated by configure script of DDD,
are wrong.  You can either manually edit the Makefiles or
fix the configure script.

I quote you from www.lesstif.org FAQ, which DDD folks should consider
reading too. 

"The order in which you should specify these options is 

-lMrm -lXm -lXt -lXmu -lXp -lXext -lX11 -lSM -lICE

Of course not all of these libraries are always necessary, but in some cases
more libraries may be required."

On many systems in the Makefiles, if 0lXm is after -lXt you get unresolved
symbols thus your ./configure failed with ambiguous
error message of "Xm not found or not in your path... something like that"

Subject: ddd-3.2.98 configure problem on cygwin (sorry for previous - no

I'm trying to build ddd-3.2.98 on cygwin and am getting the error below 
when invoking configure. This is reminiscent of a previous configure 
error that, I believe, got fixed in 3.2.95. The library had something 
to do with library ordering, I think.

Does anyone have a fix for this?

Is there any additional info that I can provide to help diagnose the 
problem? I am very hopeful that we can get ddd 3.3 to build on cygwin.



PS: I know that this, in all likelihood, isn't a cygwin or XFreeCygwin 
problem but there may be individuals on these lists that can help or 
would, in general, be interested.
