 BTW, it isn't cygwin-specific neither, the same happens under Linux.
However I think I do understand why it didn't happen with your makefiles:
you actually link in the alert.o (and the other files common to all tests)
into each test whereas I compile them once into a librrary (.a) and then
use it. So in this sense it is specific -- not to autotools but to my
Makefile. I still think the problem should be fixed though because using a
library should be better/faster than using individual object files

 The file has been added relatively recently, however I just generalized
the include/wx/html/forcelnk.h which you should have in 2.5.4 too. And the
new file is here:


Basically you have to put wxFORCE_LINK_THIS_MODULE(any_unique_name) in the
file you want to be included in the final executable and use
wxFORCE_LINK_MODULE() with the same "any_unique_name" in some other file
which is linked in (e.g. because it contains main()).
