gcc uses them automatically: no

why they are: cygipc should be there.  [binary package installs
there]  When the user is new it does not have /usr/local, I
guess he wont have cygipc too and the build fails anyway (?).

Actually configure should search specifically for cygipc and
report if not found.  Last time I looked it blindly used
'-L/usr/local/lib -lcygipc', so if the cygipc was missing it
stopped mysterous places like

checking whether the C compiler (gcc  ) works... no

I am ocassionally newbie too...  And I had /usr/local.  If I
hadnt it maybe it would failed somewhere else, dunno, ATM I dont
have NT nearby so cant test.
