Re: missing exported function from cygwin1.dll

Thanks, I've attached the text output of cygcheck, with the hostname asterisked for privacy.
Regarding the functions stated as "missing" in the error message:

For vim, the file needed was _getreent (decoration retained)
For tcsh, the file was _fstat64                      "

I'm also concerned about other programs that may not find what is needed in installed DLL's despite a consistent download and install for the DLL's and calling programs via setup.exe. In the case above, both vim and tcsh were the most up-to-date on the site. Hopefully this can be resolved without doing a rebuild of cygwin modules.

Hmm, exactly which missing function does the error mention?  Also, it's
usually a good idea, when reporting Cygwin problems, to attach the output
of "cygcheck -svr", as indicated in <>.
