I'm attaching a patch against gnustep-make-2.2.0 which fixes some issues with
DLL creation in the Makefiles:

1) On Cygwin, shared libraries use the 'cyg' prefix to distinguish them from
native Win32 libraries, which either use the 'lib' prefix or none at all.

2) Use the '-Wl,--enable-auto-image-base' flag instead of manually rebasing
for better results.

With these patches, and the new shared libobjc in our gcc-4.3 packages, I
have successfully built the current GNUstep core with the X11/Art backend
along with several applications.

Gratuitous screenshot:


Packages will soon be available from the Cygwin Ports project.
