Okay, now I finally have working cygwin installation. Looks like cygwin can't
be installed on Samba mounted drive -- which is that I've was trying to do
previously. The system is not always accessible to me, but still it's

Looks like LD_LIBRARY_PATH variable has no effect on cygwin. I've committed a
fix, which makes this test pass on cygwin.

I need help with this issue. The problem is that there's a file a.cpp:
which is compiled into DLL. The 'b' function is defined in another DLL, that
'a' is not linked too (intentionally). Seems like this causes the error. Now
the question -- anybody knows why. Does cygwin require that another DLL be
given during linking a.dll? Does it require __dllimport on b?
If that's the case, then the test just makes no sense for cygwin and I'll
And BTW, I get a some other failures on cygwin -- for example, the 'stage'
test. I wonder why it works for you :-/
