Yes, 'make' fixed the problem. Thanks a lot.
BTW. I looked at the executable file size for a simplest project
and was surprised how large it is, compared to that produced by Delphi.
Almost 10 times or so. Not that I'm going to criticize this, but just
curious, is it a real necessity or it could be optimized in future?
Best regards,
 Nikolai Zhubr
