This bug prevents me from linking our program under cygwin.  The program
is Macaulay2, see http://macaulay2.com/.  I'm working now on a work-around
involving using libgmp instead of libmpir, and I expect that to be successful.

I'm not sure what you mean when you say it will not work under Windows, since my
bug report is about a program crashing, and the program should work,
i.e., "ld" should
link object files together or give an error message.
