Did I find an error in the current binutils or what???


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
