I'm still having the same problem as with the RC1 (not unexpectedly)
when building for Cygwin.

This turns out to only happen when going through TestInit.  It seems
that this causes the embed test to add some new options to the gcc
command line, specifically an empty "-Wp, " and that just makes the
compiler hang.  I'm not quite sure what might have changed that causes
this option to have an empty argument.  I think the expectation was that
there'd be a "-Wp,D_FORTIFY_SOURCE=2" in that place.  Please note that
from the previous release the compiler on Cygwin was updated and source
fortification is now the default.

Any ideas of why that takes this unfortunate turn of events or even
better how to fix it?
