Btw, after some investigation, It appears that you are putting
/whereever/i686-pc-cygwin/bin in your path when it is not intended to be
in your path.  That directory is only intended to be run by the cross
tools.  If you need to use the cross versions of ar, as, ld, etc., you
should be invoking them as i686-pc-cygwin-ar, i686-pc-cygwin-as, etc.
Including this directory in your path will just confuse the native
tools since it has the undecorated versions of the programs like "ld".
