RE: wrong link command called

Hi Jonathan,

When I run the command "link" from GNU make, it runs
c:/cygwin/bin/link.exe because that is the directory where make.exe

Why are you putting a Win32 make.exe into the cygwin bin when it's not a cygwin program? Why not just move it to a different path location, or else use the cygwin build of make?

Win32 Make generally behaves as a Win32 program should. Cygwin make behaves as a linux emualtion layer program should. I think it's generally better to not mix the two types of progam at all if it can be avoided. It always causes problems in my experience.
