undefined reference when linking against glib-2.0




 Hi.

 I'm trying to compile the following source file
---
#include <glib.h>
#include <stdio.h>

int main(int argc, char **argv)
{
  int *a;

  a = g_new(int, 1);
  g_free(a);

return 0;
}
---
... and get linking errors.

$ gcc -Wl,--verbose -o testa `pkg-config --cflags --libs glib-2.0` test.c
/tmp/ccHtEBvg.o:test.c:(.text+0x1e): undefined reference to `g_malloc_n'
/tmp/ccHtEBvg.o:test.c:(.text+0x2e): undefined reference to `g_free'
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status

(attempt to open /usr/lib/gcc/i686-pc-cygwin/7.4.0/../../../libglib-2.0.dll.a succeeded)

Windows 7 64-bit using 32-bin Cygwin. glib-2.0 (2.54.3-1) libraries and devel packages are installed.

What am I missing?

I've tried with 64-bin Cygwin too.

I'm obviously doing something wrong. Thanks for help.
