This errors often are caused by missing libraries. UNIX/Linux ld allow to link 
dynamic, that means the symbols are unresolved at link time and resolved 
while running. Windows does not allow undefined symbols in dll's. 

You may search for the unresolved symbols in all *.a and *.dll.a files and add 
the missing library to the relating See the example below how to 
search for. Add this library to your at the end of the relating 
_LIBADD line.  

cd <lxyroot>
find -name '*.a' -print -exec sh -c "nm {} | grep 'TextCache7findFitEP6Buffer' 
" \;
