Subject: Updated: gcc-2.95.2-2 and binutils-19990818-2
> I've installed a new version of the gcc and binutils package on
> sourceware: cygwin/latest/gcc and cygwin/latest/binutils.
> (Note that the below strong positive statements indicating that
> something is fixed may well be wishful thinking.)
> - Elimination of the /tmp\foo errors from various binutils tools.
> (Brought about by using a newer version of libiberty when building)
> - No more "impure_ptr" errors when compiling with -mno-cygwin.
> (After exhaustive debugging)
> - No more linking of libm.a since libm.a is really libcygwin.a.
> Patch from Ron Parker:
> - Enable -Bdynamic, -Bstatic and linking of dlls on the command line.
> Patches from Chuck Wilson:
> - Defines -Dunix when -mno-cygwin is not specified. This was discussed
> on the Cygwin mailing list recently. You should be able to undef
> this by saying -Uunix if it causes problems.
> - Does not automatically define any WIN32 or WINNT environment variables
> when -mno-win32 is specified.
> - Eliminates usr/i686-pc-cygwin/include files.
> - Fixes windres for correct handling of icons
> Patch from DJ Delorie:
> To update your installation, CREATE AN EMPTY DIRECTORY, cd to it, and
> download the latest version of setup.exe from the cygwin/latest
> directory at a cygwin mirror site near you. Then type:
> setup gcc
> setup binutils
> Answer the questions as you did when you first installed cygwin. This
> procedure will only update the gcc and binutils packages. If you have
> not previously used the new setup.exe program to install a version of
> cygwin, you probably will need to install the entire cygwin package for
> correct operation.
> Once the setup is complete you may remove this newly created directory.
> It will contain the setup.exe program, a setup log file, and the gcc and
> binutils tar files. None of these are needed for further operation of
> gcc or binutils but you can keep them around if you are interested in
> reinstalling everything later. The setup.log file contains diagnostics
> that will be helpful if your installation failed for some reason.
> As usual, I have only updated sourceware. The gcc and binutils files
> will take a while to propagate to the mirror sites.
> If you have questions or comments, please send them to the cygwin
> mailing list at: email@example.com . I would appreciate
> if you would use this mailing list rather than emailing me directly.
