Hello everybody,

this is my first posting here, so please be paitient with me ;)

In 99% of the time I'm using linux, and therefore I'm writing my prgroms
for linux. Lately more and more windoze using friends ask me, if I could
give them my programs. And as those programs don't have much platform
dependent codings it was not a problem to compile them using fpc1.0.10
on the installed win98. But as I was bored to reboot my linux, just to
compile a program, I started looking for cross-compiling utils.

I've downloadet GNU binutils 2.1.4 and configured them with the
"--target=winnt" option. Compilation worked just fine, and for test
purposes I symlinkd as-new, ld-new to asw and ldw. For the first test I
took hello-world, but it worked only partly :(

Below I've included the compiler output and the part from fpcdebug.txt,
which deals with the error. Can anybody help me?

thx in advance
