Yes, by using the -mno-cygwin flag, you will not have to provide any

to provide the GTK dlls. I find it easiest to provide the GTK dlls using
the runtime installer from: http://www.dropline.net/gtk/download.php
This is a nicely packaged runtime environment with an installer.
Under Cygwin, I find the following command useful, it lists the dlls
that an application is linked against.
objdump -p myapp.exe | grep "DLL Name"
Where do you live? I am from Cape Town, but now live in Canada.
Clive are you telling me that if I install Cygwin and do as you have laid

/windows/system32 and rebooting? I really would like to give my user one
executable rather than an executable and a number of dlls to install. You know
what users are like.......:-(
I am hoping from what you said above that I can go ahead and do all my
development on Linux(my preference) and when its working copy the source to
Windows and recompile and, other than any silly errors I made, it should all
