For the record, the problem was with the cygwin build of xine-lib as
follows:

Between 1.1.7 and 1.1.8, I added libmodplug to the repository as a
dependency for BMPx.  libmodplug is a C++ library which exposes
functions usable in C.  The problem was that the libmodplug.pc
pkg-config file explicitly added -lstdc++ to MODPLUG_LIBS, which was
among the LIBADD libs for xineplug_dmx_audio.la.  However, libtool
complained about the -lstdc++ because it is static only, and refused to
link a shared library, creating a (worthless) static one instead.
Furthermore, as xine-lib deletes the .la files during make install,
cygport wasn't able to catch the static module either.

(This wasn't an issue with bmpx because it is written in C++, and hence
links with g++, which anyway links with -lstdc++ and ignores the fact
that it's static only, where xine-lib is written in C.)

As mentioned in the most recent upload announcement, I've fixed the
libmodplug.pc file accordingly and rebuilt xine-lib, adding a check to
the latter's src_install() to catch a similar occurrence in the future.

Thank you for reporting this problem to the list.
