ISTR a suggestion on the list a while ago to create an empty file and call
it libm.a. It has since been superceded by the empty archive one, and now
a non-empty libm.a is actually part of the Cygwin package. Could you
please verify that you're linking against /usr/lib/libm.a, and that it's
not an empty file? On my system (cygwin-1.3.22-1):
$ ls -l /usr/lib/libm.a
-rwxrwxrwx+ 1 Administ Users 218298 Mar 18 09:21 /usr/lib/libm.a
Hope this helps,
