GCC 2.95.3-4 Problem

I think you can assume that what Chris says is no more or less than 
what he says! ;-)

You clearly imply that you want to build an application that doesn't
use cygwin1.dll.  Using Mingw does this.  If you have a problem doing
so, you want to address the proper list to attempt to find a resolution
to the problem.  This is what Chris is saying.

Also, most often, when you have a problem with a particular application 
after you build it, the most useful course of action is to debug it.  
Consulting a mailing list like this one or the Mingw with general problems
usually doesn't lead to much useful feedback.  Although the people on 
these lists try to be helpful, there's only so much they can divine 
without specific, detailed information on the issue.  Just a helpful hint!

Good luck,
