No, you got it backwards. There are only two programs -- the two MAIN
programs "gettext.exe" and "ngettext.exe" -- that DON'T use the
cyggettext*.dll code. There are 6 or so "development" oriented programs
that DO use the code. Why include duplicate code in all those programs
if it can all be stored in a shared library?
