Thanks for the fast answers so far...

I changed the file to *.c and compiled it again. Same error.

I don't know exactly what to configure whithin this file...but I added the
following line:
<dllmap dll="libtest.so" target="libtest.so" />

What does this entry mean? Do I have to edit/move/add the libtest.so file
anywhere else?
Currently, the .exe and the libtest.so are placed in the same directory
Doesn't work either...Same error.
