Cool down Chris. The problem here that Dale has rightly corrected, IMHO, is
that the -mno-cygwin switch is pulling in header files from the
Cygwin/usr/include directory and thus requiring the cygwin1.dll. There has
always been a MinGW distribution since the introduction of the -mno-cygwin
switch and I know that you're aware of that, however the -mno-cygwin switch was
meant to allow the Cygwin GCC to build executables without the need for the
I myself choose to use the MinGW GCC to build Windows Native Applications (WNA)
instead of the -mno-cygwin switch because of the reasons that has caused this
discussion. It has always been my belief that the -mno-cygwin switch should be
treated more as a cross-compile which Dale has given instructions to setup.
