bug in "ar" when creating libraries on cross linked filesystems
Fri Sep 5 14:15:00 GMT 2003
I can't reproduce the problem and don't see anything out of the ordinary in
your cygcheck output.
Could you do a
$ which ar
and see if you're really working with Cygwin's ar?
(I've just read Igor's reply - interesting hunch, but I'd have expected to
be able to reproduce the problem..)
