Re: problem with dll and stdout

This is a confusing and contradictory jumble.  I suggest you try again
with more detail.

It doesn't need to.

If you are only using ld, then just don't link with cygwin1.dll or any
DLL's that depend on it.  That is what the -mno-cygwin switch would do.

So, you must be using Cygwin's gcc in regular Cygwin mode, and -mno-cygwin
would not be an option.  In that case, I think you are out of luck.

I have "heard" there are complex work arounds for this, but they are not
100% successful.  I don't know what they are, so plan to spend a lot of
time googling, head bashing, and examining your "inner self" if you
take this route. :)

Lobby the Cygwin binutils maintainer for an update, or make sure you have
replaced the ld gcc is using.  Look at the output of "gcc --verbose" to
see which one that is.

You shouldn't need to if you do the above.

It wouldn't.  gcc and binutils are separate software packages.
