read the emails ;-)

it said "-lib sIgpAtch" and not "-lib sigpack"
note the upper/lower-cases!
actually the "-lib" flags means 2 things:
a) open the specified file (with an added suffix , like dll). since you 
are on windows the case of the filename doesn't matter.
however there is still the 2nd thingie:
b) try to execute a specially named function; this function is named 
<libraryname>_setup(); in your case it is sIgpAck_setup().
and although the windows filesystem is not case-sensitive (as noted 
above), C is, and most externals are written in C (or C++ which is the 
same in terms of case-sensitivity)
these are 2 completely different things.
