Re: missing exported function from cygwin1.dll

Ah, you still have the test (Cygwin 1.5) versions of vim and tcsh.
You need to downgrade those to the current version if you're not
going to use the Cygwin 1.5 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 <>.
