Let me rephrase.

gcc-3 -mno-cygwin -o foo.exe foo.c

under cygwin, works to create a windows executable that does not reference the cygwin dlls. (provided of course that foo.c does not call any APIs that can only be provided by cygwin, like fork). That *was* a general solution.

What is the equivalent using gcc-4 under cygwin?
