I believe this line causes the error. The linker simply doesn't see the 
jawt.lib module. Please try using the following name for the module:


instead of the current one:


(note the changes in slashes). I think make and/or cygwin/MKS can mangle 
the file name. There must be a way to make them return a proper full 
path name for the file so that the linker could see the module.

Actually, I suggest to pass the following option to the linker:


and list the jawt.lib simply by name together with other .lib's you're 
linking against.

Please try this and see if it works for you.
