Re: open watcom compiling gcc on win32
Actually, I believe that the windows versions of GCC can already produce
windows compatible DLLs.
At this point, you've left the realm of gcc and wandered into either
the binutils realm, or the cygwin realm. The mechanisms for producing
DLLs are in binutils (specifically, the linker "ld"), and the policy
for making cygwin1.dll specifically rests with the cygwin project.
What this guy (and possibly others here and on the mingw list) seem to be
asking for is for GCC to implement the visual C++ ABI (something which,
from what I understand Open Watcom already does).
