Actually, -lgdbm SHOULD result in a dynamic link. unless you explicitly
say '-static', ld will first attempt to link against "libgdbm.dll.a"
(the import lib for cyggdbm.dll) BEFORE trying to link against
"libgdbm.a" (the static lib).

No, see above. (Also, the current gdbm DLLization is "old style" --
which means that if you want to link STATICALLY you have to compile with
-DGDBM_STATIC. See /usr/doc/Cygwin/gdbm.README. I hope to change this
soon...utilizing autoimport functionality, blah blah blah)

True -- are you volunteering, Gerrit? :-)
