I've had a busy day and I'm a little tired, so I'm probably about to 
make a fool of myself on a public mailing list. Never mind :-) Three 
points on the znc package:

   - Unless I've missed something, all this talk of DLL naming is a 
little academic at the moment, as there is no 'dll.a' file to actually 
link against.

   - Has anyone tried building this in Cygwin? I tried rebuilding the 
1.6.0-2 release, and couldn't get it to compile without hacking the 
'Makefile.in' files. Even if you generate a 'dll.a', the linker 
arguments are in the wrong order. This doesn't matter in Linux, but it 
/does/ matter in Cygwin. Does this only build if cross-compiled out of 

   - Forgive me for being pedantic, but who gave this a GTG? I couldn't 
find one on this thread, and yet the package is up on the mirrors.

Let's hope I've missed something really obvious - apologies for any 
late-night stupidity.
