Thanks, building the two lib_.a files for Annotation and Check fixed this issue for me and I can build Method::Signatures now.

Out of interest, (and I know you've mentioned the wonderful world of ExtUtils::Depends, but I'll ask anyway :) why?

From reading about dlltool it sounds like this is building an interface library for the exported functions from the real dll. Is this just a missing artefact from the the B::Hooks::OP::_ builds on cygwin then? .a files don't appear to be common to the perl modules I have on my system, most just have a .dll.
