Startup code, crt0.o

No, all is plain old C (K&R, pre ANSI C I guess).
I think that editor was written even before C++ was invented...
(Nevertheless it still is my favorite text editor)

I put a "-lcygwin" just in front of the "-lncurses".
No difference.

I already did so. Have a look at the "typescript1" attachment
in my original posting. gdb just issues an error that I cannot
understand. But I even get that same gdb error when I try to debug
my running "hello world" program. Thus I suppose it has something
to do with gdb. A different problem.

That I why I inserted a printf() statement right at the
beginning of the main() function.
