[PATCH] Remove libstdc++ from cygwin1.dll build
Tue Nov 26 02:51:00 GMT 2002
I had some problems building the cygwin1.dll after i changed gcc to use
sjlj exceptions. The resulting dll was unusable.
I have discovered that this is due to the fact that cygwin1 is linked
against libstdc++. The only reasons why cygwin1 is linked against stdc++
are the operators new and delete and __cxa_pure_virtual.
IMHO this is not acceptable because the new and new operators will throw
exceptions if the memory allocation has failed. C programs will terminate
via abort because the exception is not caught, C++ programs might behave
A possible solution might be to use the nothrow new operators, i think
that the cleanest way is to define own operators. As a side effect the
cygwin1 dll can be build with an sjlj gcc and the dll is

* cxx.cc: New file. Implement new, new, delete and delete
operators. Implement __cxa_pure_virtual.
* Makefile.in (DLL_OFILES): Add cxx.o.
Remove libstdc++.a from cygwin1.dll link step.
