I'm just trying to build the new born openssh-3.0p1 for Cygwin.
There's a slight difference between 1.3.3 and 1.3.4 in so far as
__progname is defined in 1.3.4 while it wasn't in 1.3.3.
Unfortunately, __progname isn't defined in any header file. So what
happens (and what should work fine in theory) is, I'm getting the
following message at the end of the link stage:
Warning: resolving ___progname by linking to __imp____progname (auto-import)
Hum, the problem is that I'm getting _another_ message right after
the above one:
nmth000000.o(.idata$4+0x0): undefined reference to `_nm____progname'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
Bingo. I've tried to find a symbol `_nm____progname' in all(!) *.a
files on my system. Nada. There's no such symbol anywhere. Ok, so
collect2 is right in that this symbol can't be resolved... but the
symbol isn't even _requested_ anywhere! I have called nm on all *.o
files in the ssh build dir and I have called nm on all *.a files on
my whole system.
Sure, I can workaround that by undefining HAVE___PROGNAME in ssh's
config.h but that's no solution, somehow.
What's going wrong here??? I'm really not good in such stuff. Btw.,
I'm using the latest binutils and gcc. a `-v' option when linking
--dll-search-prefix=cyg -o ssh.exe /usr/lib/crt0.o -L.
