RE: C99 macros in math.h

I'm sorry if I appear to be a sour wheener. I know that other people have
experienced similar problems, e.g. recompiling guile on Cygwin, and I just
wanted to report what I'had found out so far.

There's AFAIK not a problem in the newlib sources. But any application to be
compiled on Cygwin that includes math.h and tests #if defined(fpclassify) or
#if defined(signbit) will get unresolved references.

I've never recompiled a Cygwin snapshot, and I sorta hoped that 'someone'
could point to how one part of newlib (math.h) makes it's way into Cygwin
without the counter-part (libm/common/s_fpclassify.c

While I'd love to spend some time recompiling a Cygwin snapshot, it won't
happen until the end of the month. Meanwhile, I'll investigate the newlib

kind regards
Peter Ring

You're right.  The correct solution if you have a problem with newlib is to
send email to the newlib at sources dot redhat dot com mailing list.
