dll and import library

I am trying to get a fortran program, which currently runs under Solaris,
to compile, link, and run on Windows (98 to be exact). The code compiles
fine using g77. However, the linking has been a problem because it uses
some Matlab libraries. Matlab ships the libraries as stripped DLL's for
windows; since they're stripped I can't use "nm" to get the symbols to
export, but I can use "objdump -p" which worked fine. I've tried to use
dlltool to create an import library (.a file); the creation of the library
seems to work fine, but when I try to link the various objects, I still
get unresolved references (which should be resolved via the import
library). Here's what I'm doing:
Now I run:
dlltool --input-def libeng.def --dllname libeng.dll --output-lib libeng.a
which creates the "libeng.a".
Now I try to link everything:
ld -o program_name $(OBJECTS) -leng $(OTHER_LIBRARIES)
I'm pretty sure the linker is seeing the libeng.a because if I
change "-leng" to something incorrect like "-len" it reports that it can't
Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.
