Interix Shared Libraries

Hey ho ;o)
To bring some (good) news (i think ;o)). I wrote a little compiler wrapper you may have heard of -> wgcc ( which behaves like gcc and uses microsofts toolchain in the background. As of 0.6.0 the shared library support is quite stable. I also created a little patch for libtool 1.5.22 which allows building it shared with wgcc. This works ok for now (just some little probs with globals ;o//), and i'm prudktively building lots of libraries (about 200 MB Sources => about 4 GB Binaries...) with little or no modification (except updating libtool) (many of those sources have never seen windows!!).
The thing works on Interix 3.5, 5.2 and 6.0 (!!) (with the newest config.guess)
If anybody is interested in this, everything can be found at sourceforge ( (the patches for libtool too....)
(if you wonder what ucl and ulink are: these are tool for the windows command line which allow linking in libraries with unix style names
without having to change the command line from cl.exe. Additionally the whole environment gcc would listen to is take into account,
and the pxwc library (wgcc) is linked in to allow in place path conversion at runtime with getenv...)
Any feedback would be really great!!
Regards, Markus
