I don't know why but I added -Xc to my command-line (I think I must have 
misread and wanted to add -Xd, and then I used the bash-history to avoid 
retyping). The --shared switch for the linker makes the trouble.
Can anyone tell me what --shared does ? In the man page for ld I find 
-shared. If this is the same, does this mean I did make a shared 
library, not a real executable ?
Stupid way to loose more than two weeks, but then, I learned to use gdb, 
which is good I think, although it didn't help me with this.
