Attempting to compile hello.cpp gives an error about libstdc++.a.
I have cygwin installed in drive D:\prog\cygwin ( /cygdrive/D/prog/cygwin )
(I don't know nothin' 'bout no steenkin' mount points). cygwin1.dll is
never put in C:/windows/system, it lives in D:\prog\cygwin\bin. Somehow I
still ended up with an old version of cygwin1.dll after doing a fresh
install and one update from ftp. The strange thing is that gcc worked fine
when used with configure, g++ didn't. Uninstalling cygwin base and gcc,
g++, fortran using setup.exe and re-installing them fixed the problem.
