This is a good point.  I saved my C++ file as a *.C file.  This is
okay and recognized by gxx as a C++ file BUT, if you type gxx myfile.c
instead of gxx myfile.C, gxx will look for a *.c file, and find your
*.C file instead ( blame that on DOS ).  Basically, the command line
is case sensitive, if gxx thinks it is compiling a *.c file, it will
only look for C libraries, if it thinks it is looking for a *.C file,
it will only look for C++ files.

Solution:  call your files *.cc, or, better yet, *.cpp, that way you
avoid this trouble.  It took my too many hours to figure that silly
tidbit out.
