Yes, a trivial invocation of help output usually works. But still the
problem remains that a library that was built against MSVCRT is not
supposed to be linked against code that was built against Cygwin -- they
are two very different runtimes. For example, try running one of those
programs and then pressing ^C to stop it and I think you will find it
segfaults or malfunctions in some other random way. Any behavior in
that situation that does work is by luck, is my point.
But I don't see why you're trying to build a Cygwin nmap anyway. nmap
has a native win32 port so why not just build that using MinGW?
