RE: CYGwin PerlMagick install

Well I finally got it to compile by linking against libMagick.dll.a as
opposed to However, 'make test' seems to be unhappy; it
appears there still may be a problem as indicated by the "make: ***
[test_dynamic] Error 255" line (at the bottom) which makes me think there is
a problem linking against the .dll. Is this a bug or something messed up on
my system?

Regardless, moving forward - I run the demo under X and get a screen full of
old Farrah Faucet pics (I through my poster out decades ago, but I think
it's her) with different processing applied, so it looks like it does work.
OK, so I'm encouraged and leery at the same time.

This was a pain in the but to get going. There isn't a lot of useful info
with regard to getting IM and PM running under CYGwin, and still even less
on news groups. There was nothing I read in any docs that lead me to change
which lib to link to. As my old boss used to say, "even a blind squirrel
finds a nut once in while."

If you read this and it helps in your quest, I'm glad. If you have some more
experience with this than I do I would appreciate your insight.
