Thank you, Igor. Good suggestion.
Tried adding -fleading-underscore to the compile flags. No change.
Tried adding -fno-leading-underscore to the compile flags. Squillions of
link errors. Not really surprising.
My understanding is that under cygwin, timezone is a function, not a global
variable. _timezone is the equivalent global variable. See
I can't find anything in the makefile that would upset name mangling.
CC = gcc
CFLAGS = -g -O $(DFLAGS) -Wall
DFLAGS = -DSYSV -DHAS_ITIMER -DHASSELECT
LIBS = -lm -lc
It's really strange that there is a problem with only one symbol, and that
one symbol is defined in libc.a.
