Title: Windows x-compilation - inclusion of static libreg.a breaks .exe
Status: Open Type: Code Defect
Severity: Critical Priority: Immediate
Subsystem: Tcl Resolution: Open

Version Found In:
in kitsh's, the use of $ARCHS in the final link stage produces an executable which windows complains about - it says it can't find the libreg13.dll file on the system.  Same for libdde.  This comprehensively prevents kitcreator cross-compiling for my system.

I have found that preventing these static linkages removes the error.

I suggest that either the aclocal.m4 macros which generate ARCHS are too-inclusive, or the static build of libreg etc is somehow wrong.

The following (non-minimal!) patch fixes/avoids the problem by simply removing the offending .a files from contention.

Not sure this is really solving the problem, or merely masking a different problem.
