There's something i'm confused about.

Hrm. Well, I'm using Mandrake linux, perhaps this is the source of the difference.

As mentioned before, prepending -X32_64 gets ar to accept .o's. The option isn't explained in the man pages and the -help line says its an ignored option. Go figure. <=)

I did it with:

ar -cr test test.a

and it works fine. I'm using release candidate 3.3 though; but it could be
related to the options you use with "ar".

I've used "ar" with 3.2 on minGW, 3.2 on linux, 3.3 on minGW, and now 3.3 on
linux. And it all works.
