Hello Alexandre,

	I found the same problem a couple of weeks ago. When I
brought up the problem, the suggested solution was to place a softlink
in the config/i386 (something like that) from cygwin32 to cygwin. I
that was only a band-aid fix, but it worked.

	I have another problem with the cygwin build ob beta 4. The
problem is in the build process between the compiler and the
The compiler is often instructed to create '.lo' files, but the
expects '.o' files. Instead of getting deep into the build procedures,
just copied '*.lo' to '*.o' in the directories in question. When I
reported the
problem, the only answer was that they were surprised that libtool did
not take care of the problem.

It's a bug in the distribution.  Hopefully, the attached patch,
already installed in the CVS tree, should take care of it.
