Hi all
after 6 years from conversation ,I have the same problem here! 
I'm working on cross mkbundle for armhf. I got everything done for a console
app but for winforms apps I have the 'libgdiplus' problem. I have the
'libgdiplus.a' library which is armhf native.
How can I statically link this library via mkbundle and gcc? what dllmap
entry should be added to config file?

can you explain more?
