Is it still true that global variables exported from a dll must have a

perhaps indicate a package has addressed this issue (by whatever
means) and is therefore dll safe.

While this is required by MSVC, to my knowledge, it is not required by
Cygwin or MinGW anymore since binutils takes care of it automatically.

AFAIK, only cygwin has completely seamless support. Complex array exports - like long long variables - won't reference properly without a
runtime fixup by the loader. Mind you, as I'm not on the mingw lists, I
may be out of date.

Then provide examples to support your claim.
