PathRemoveFileSpec link problem..

That fixed the problem, but is there a way in which I can refer to the
directory where shlwapi lives, rather than the lib itself?

- Shouldn't it be resolved via the standard libraries?
- Failing that shouldn't specifying -L/usr/lib/w32api resolve it?

Or do I have to specify each lib to the linker that a prog uses?

You need to add -lshlwapi to the end of your link command line to link
against the library.
