newb: using user installed lib in cygwin

P: n/a
I am using Cygwin in windows 2000. I have a file libtclap.a at
C:\cygwin\usr\local\lib. In order to compile I have to spell out
C:\cygwin\usr\local\lib\libtclap.a. It seems like cygwin should
automatically be able to find the file, but it can't. Is there something I
should be doing to make this easier? Thanks

Yes. Read The Directions. I suspect there is a configuration
option and/or command line switch to tell your compiler/linker
where to find certain things.

This is not a C++ language issue, so we can't help with it here.
Check your Cygwin documentation.
