I don't have Cygwin on this computer and I will never have. But I just 
checked and my other computer where I have Interix installed (or in 
Windows 7 known as Subsystem for Unix Applications (SUA)) I have "file" 
and it returns that the pp.o is a COFF file... that explains the 
problems... -.-

But why? Even if I add "-Aas" or "-Aelf" the internal assembler seems to 
be used. I don't get it -.-
