Which patch?  I see no reference to a patch in those messages.

I don't see where this has anything particular to do with either Cygwin
nor MinGW.

A fix for this should probably allow -shared-* and -static-* through,
but also make sure that picked-up dependencies from deplibs and from
postdeps don't contain those which aren't desired.  Ideally with a
testsuite test.

I've lost an unknown number of emails due to some server trouble.
If you've written to me during the last week, consider resending.
