bug in "ar" when creating libraries on cross linked filesystems

the command
    ar cq libdh.a a.o b.o
does not work, if the current directory is on a linked filesystem.
In my case "." referes to /cygdrive/h".
The error message of "ar" is:
  ar: libdh.a: rename: Cross-device link
  make: *** [libdh.a] Error 1

The program works, when using local files, e.g. /usr/src

# uname -a
CYGWIN_NT-5.1 PCHEMPEL2 1.5.3(0.90/3/2) 2003-09-01 13:15 i686 unknown unknown Cygwin
