FYI, if you want to see the problem with gcc-3.2
refusing to be linked by libtool, do this:

1)Download gmp-4.1 from:

2)Unpack to a tmp dir, configure with:
"--enable-shared --disable-static --enable-cxx"

3)Run make, and wait till it gets to linking the c++ library, which
will display the message.

At this point it should bomb out complaining that " is a
static library and Cygwin doesn't allow static libraries in its
shared libraries" [or something to that effect].

Note that this behaviour is seen in a number of packages.  Amongst
others, these include Berkeley DB v3+/v4+ c++ libraries and the
plotutils c++ libraries.  IIRC, I was encountering the same issue
with compiling setup.exe.  This behaviour only occurs with 
gcc-3.2(3.1 as well) and has been confirmed on both WinME and Win2k. 
I've done my best to figure it out, but I'm not much of a libtool
wiz.  It doesn't really seem like a libtool problem, however, because
using CXX="g++-2" & CXXCPP="g++-2 -E" works fine.
