I made things the wrong way... I did try to compile in a X-tools bash
but I
didn't get that to work so that workaround I mentioned was to be able to
compile from a dos command shell using cygwin-commands. Now I know
bash solved that problem and I got a nice lib.
The rest of it is just me messing around, mixing unix, windows and
I have to get it proper cross-compiled and I will probably be back with
stupid questions.

Thanks alot!
