Re: Perl - trying to install libwin32
Linkers like forward references, and don't understand back references.
The libraries should go to the very end of the line, after the object
files (and I believe the *FLAGS vars usually get put right after the
executable). You might need to use some other variable for this.
If the libraries are at the end of the gcc invocation, please post the
exact gcc command you get when compiling.
