readline issues?

I have the latest readline that is available for cygwin.  Readline 4.1-2
according to the CYGWIN-PATCHES directory in the source.

I was trying to port tintin++ 1.84 this evening.  bzero seemed to get
complained about but I simply did a (char *) cast on arg1 in both

The critical failure seems to be in the linking to readline:

---- Linking...

rl.o(.text+0x54):rl.c: undefined reference to `_rl_last_c_pos'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [tt++] Error 1

I've looked at the cygwin patched source for readline--and both are included.

I've also noted that I tried an old trick (thinking maybe it wasn't seeing
libreadline at first) and explicitly declared /lib/libreadline.a  ...It
actually complains MORE.  I get identical results to the above if I link
against the .dll.a though.  So it's seeing it...BUT--

Why are they considered undefined when they're so obviously in the library?

Anyone shed some light on this?  I'm displeased with wintin.  :)
