undefined reference to `main'

hi all
i made 3 files and made a makefile for them  but everytime i try to make myprogram i get this error:

 make myprogram
gcc -o myprogram point.o rectangle.o testRectangle.o
/usr/lib/gcc-lib/i386-redhat-linux/3.2.2/../../../crt1.o(.text+0x18): In function `_start':
../sysdeps/i386/elf/start.S:77: undefined reference to `main'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [myprogram] Error 1

You need main.
Where does your program start?

this is my  makefile
---------------------------

# ’myprogram’ is built from
# point.c rectangle.c and testRectangle.c

CC = gcc
CFLAGS = -Wall
OBJS = point.o rectangle.o testRectangle.o

point.o: point.c
      $(CC) $(CFLAGS) -c point.c

rectangle.o: rectangle.c
      $(CC) $(CFLAGS) -c rectangle.c

testRectangle.o: testRectangle.c
      $(CC) $(CFLAGS) -c testRectangle.c

main.o: main.c
      $(CC) $(CFLAGS) -c main.c

myProg: $(OBJS)
      $(CC) -o myProg $(OBJS)

-----------------------------------------
and this is my main.c file


#include "testRectangle.h"
 Rectangle rec,bol,inter;
 Point pt , p1,p2,b1,b2;

main(void){

pt=makePoint(3,-12);

p1=makePoint(2,2);
p2=makePoint(5,4);

b1=makePoint(4,1);
b2=makePoint(6,6);
   
bol=makeRectangle(b1,b2);

 showPoint(pt);
rec=makeRectangle(p1,p2);
showRectangle(rec);
inter=intersection(rec,bol);

testArea();
 testisEmpty();
testIntersection(inter);
      exit(0);

       }
------------------------

using the following command  :   make myProg   give me this error

C:\gcc-2.95.2\bin>make myProg
gcc -Wall -c testRectangle.c
gcc -o myProg point.o rectangle.o testRectangle.o
..\lib\gcc-lib\i386-mingw32\2.95.2\..\..\..\..\i386-mingw32\lib\libmingw32.a(main.o)(.text+0x8e): undefined reference to `WinMain@16'
make: *** [myProg] Error 1

any ideas?
