I have a test version of dlltool that I'd like to folks to test out. This
one doesn't create any files and builds everything in memory.
The performance increase on Linux/ext2fs is quite significant; on MS
filesystems, and for large implibs, it's a few orders of magnitude
faster. The performance increase really shows when you're building an
import library with say 10k symbols (eg., wxWindows implib contains
~8.5k symbols, and that can kill your FAT filesystem, or at least bring
it to its knees).
The code is adapted from DJ's pe-dll, tested on my local tree. However,
expect bugs and misfeatures. Same command line options as the normal
for both dlltool.exe and dlltool.c.
