cygwin-1.7: linking difference

Hi All,
following the Corinna request I tried to test the 
building of my packages on cygwin-1.7 and I found this
slight difference when linking

on cygwin 1.5 "-lcruft.dll" is accepted as form 
to link versus cygcruft.dll

while on 1.7 the outcome is:

/bin/ld: cannot find -lcruft.dll

of course if I modified the form "in -lcruft"
than everything is fine.

Is it a intentional change ?


PS: My packages need c++ and gfortran so I will wait
Dave before uploading on cygwin-1.7
