I really appreciate the leads and code you've provided. Could we please
discuss only on the Cygwin mailing list? That's the convention we have,
barring extraordinary circumstances :) . It allows for public review.
Installing gettext-devel and popt-devel got rid of my configure issues. I
updated lpr/Printer.cc and cygdrop/cygdrop.cc to use strcasecmp() instead of
stricmp() and strcmpi() respectively. I did not (yet) look into the
compiler warnings that spew during the build of some of the cygutils
At that point I could reproduce your first mkshortcut issue. Your patch

the command 'src/mkshortcut/.libs/mkshortcut xyzzy' works and does create
the link file. Another invocation then shows the error. Is it simply
mis-reporting that there's an existing link file? I'm also assuming you're
