gcc - no messages re unresolved symbols

I'm having an odd problem with gcc (cygwin version 2.95) on my NT machine.
If I compile/link a program that has some unresolved symbols, the linker
doesn't tell me about them, which makes tracking them down more than a
little hard...

For example, here's what happens when I compile a program that has a missing

[c:\miscprog]gcc -o amput amput.c
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

For comparison, here's what happens when I do the same thing on a unix
(SunOS 5.6) machine:

socrates% gcc -o ttt amput.c -lm
Undefined                       first referenced
 symbol                             in file
ld: fatal: Symbol referencing errors. No output written to ttt
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

Any idea what's wrong? I'm pretty sure this used to work at one point.

Thanks a lot for any suggestions.
