i spent some time trying to build xfce4 cvs under cygwin. i got most of
the base pacakges built, but i can't get any .dlls to build. i tried
adding -no-undefined, but that just spewed out a list of unresolved
symbols. so then i explicitly linked in the libraries that provide
them, but i get a libtool warning about not having shared libs of
libxfcegui4, etc. i'll have to mess with this some more later. this
probably means adding -no-undefined to everything, and making sure
everyone links to the proper libs.
on the downside, i'm not sure how some things are going to work - for
example, most panel plugins reference some symbols contained in the
panel binary itself, and you can't actually link to that...
