Re: [Mingw-users] Dll Build Issue

Does that change your statement above?

Ah, that makes sense. Appreciate the insight. 
I re-read the GNU documentation and realized 
I misinterpreted the --library section

One item I am confused about; if I do not include '--library' and substitute '-l' the 
compilation stops with ld reporting it "cannot find" the library with "-l" prepended to 
the literal path. Adding "-Wl," has no effect. Removing the explicit path and 
relying on the '-L' search paths is ignored as well.

Apologies, the last submission was done with my Kindle and 
clearly its mail client has some issues. I thought I was responding
to the original thread.
If this message is acceptable I will continue to use this client or if not, go to T-bird

Thanks
