Err, what???  add.h should be sitting right there!  Did you delet it?

I'm absolutely clueless.

I was refering to both.  The benchmark program is an executable of course.   :-)
But note: You cannot link any C++ program with a library compiled with another
compiler.  So you can't compile something with Visual Studio and link against
the GiNaC library built with cygwin.  You'll have to stick to cygwin.  Or you'll
have to squeeze CLN and GiNaC thru Visual Studio...
