Re: Dependency error for package gsl

the setup.ini lacks the requirement for "lapack".
lapack provides cygblas.dll, which is required for more or
less all programs using gsl.
On a side note: I have installed gsl, gsl-dev and gsl-doc, and
can compile and link programs using cyggsl-0.dll, but on execution
they silently die. Is this the normal behaviour? I'd expect some kind
of error message on startup. cygcheck however, reveals the dependency.
If it dies because you're missing cygblas.dll, there is no standard
error-reporting behavior imposed by Cygwin in these cases. It's
application dependent. So feel free to patch-away to get the behavior
you want with your favorite applications. ;-)
