Re: [bug] elf.h incomplete

I've also run in to this problem, though in my case I just fired up a

I found using VM too uncomfortable and limiting, this is why i
switched to Cygwin. I have real ARM HW here to actually run the built
code. And Cygwin NFS server helps a lot with this.
BTW, libelf.h has all the #defines, but it only #includes them if it
doesn't find an elf.h, which Cygwin has.
There's Cygwin package. But i checked it, it doesn't have reloc
definitions either. So:
a) Not an option anyway.
b) Completing system-wide elf.h would solve all problems at once, and
increase compatibility. Anyway Cygwin's aim is to be as close to UNIX
environment as possible, to make things working out of the box. Or am i
wrong here ?
