configuration), then cobc is created smoothly.

- Not directly related to OC: I'm creating DLL's out of my object files,
but it seems that libtool is broken in the default Cygwin installation.
After compiling libtool (1.4.2) and re-installing it, DLL's can be
I use the following method (in case anybody is interested; documentation
on this is hard to fine):

   libtool --mode=compile gcc -c mylibrary.c
   gcc mylibrary.lo -o mylibrary.dll -shared

When calling shared objects, I use the Windows functions
LoadLibrary/GetProcAddress instead of lt_dtlopen/lt_dlsym. Although they
should be the same (more or less), with the lt_dl functions I get a core
