Hi Keith,

Strangely, although I didn't preserve the generated `deffilep.h', and it now appears nowhere in either the source or the build tree, its absence doesn't seem to affect the success of the build; is it a quirk of building for the `mingw32' target, that it isn't required, or is it just superfluous?

Weird. It is included by ld/pe-dll.[ch] which are used by the i386-mingw32 target, so I would have expected your build to complain. Possibly there is a missing dependency in the Makefile so that pe-dll.o does not know that it needs the deffile.h header.

I plan to repackage binutils-2.19, for redistribution from the MinGW site on SourceForge, and I would like to save other users from the problems I have experienced. Presumably:

  * rescheduling the timestamps for bfd/doc/{elf.texi,bfd.info}
  * adding ld/deffilep.c

are appropriate.


 Should I also add ld/deffilep.h?

Yes I think so.
