Sure, I just want to be able to *create* a dll which provides a similar binary
interface as standard Windows libraries (dlls) do. I.e. a dll with stdcall
interface and undecorated exported names. And apparently I want to be able
to *link* with that dll. That's all! So far, I can't use for that task ld
directly, I'm forced to use wrappers around it.

Okay. I'll try to isolate a bug as less as possible, and will send the
result. It will consume some time though.

Thanks for your help.
