No, you got it backwards.  There are only two programs -- the two MAIN 
programs "gettext.exe" and "ngettext.exe" -- that DON'T use the 
cyggettext*.dll code.  There are 6 or so "development" oriented programs 
that DO use the code.  Why include duplicate code in all those programs 
if it can all be stored in a shared library?
