A long while ago I had to always do LD=ld... there were, IIRC, problems
with both autoconf and the gcc that came with the 20.1.  I do not
believe I've had problems since upgrading autoconf and gcc to EGCS 1.2.

My current setup is:

bash-2.02$ uname -a
CYGWIN_NT-4.0 GYPSY 20.1 (0.3/1/1) 1998-12-3 20:39:18 i586 unknown
bash-2.02$ gcc -v
Reading specs from /progra~1/cygnus/CYGWIN~1/H-I586~1/bin/../lib/gcc-lib/i586-cy
gcc version 2.95 19990728 (release)
bash-2.02$ ld -v
GNU ld version 2.9.4 (with BFD 2.9.4)

I just did a cvs upd (NT cvs client) followed by:

$ LIBS=-lgnuregex ./configure --disable-ldbm --enable-ldap \
  --enable-shell --enable-passwd

Ran without problem...  it will be a while before the make actually
completes on my old NT laptop.
