When starting Eclipse Indigo I always receive the following CxxTest Messagebox:

"In order to support retrieving stack traces when failures occur in CxxTest unit tests,
the following dependencies need to be installed on your system:

* The following linker libraries are missing: libbfd

Stack traces will be disabled in any projects that you create. Once you have satisfied
these requirements, you can re-enable this feature in your Eclipse preferences."

My system configuration is:
- Windows 7 Prof. x64
- Eclipse Indigo
- Web-CAT Eclipse C++ Feature 1.7.0.201101121126
- Cygwin 1.7.9-1 with following packages (not complete list)
- binutils 2.22.51-1
- bison 2.4.2-1
- flex 2.5.35-1
- gcc 3.4.4-999
- gdb 7.3.50-3

In the Cygwin-Terminal I can find the file "libbfd.a" in the /usr/lib folder, but it seems that the Eclipse plugin can't find it.
I've also tried to recompile the binutils with option "--enable-shared", but still same behaviour.
Any suggestions???

Regards Daniel
