Ah.  That would be a 'no' then.  Paul's patches:

2000-11-09  Paul Sokolovsky  <>
        * pe-dll.c (auto_export): pass (optional) bfd containing
        symbol to allow for contextual filtering. Filter all
        symbols coming from libgcc.a. Also, filter all symbols
        starting with two underscores. Finally, do not re-export
        symbols imported from DLLs.

However, he wrote in the message quoted above
( that filtering
all symbols with two leading underscores was too much, and had to back
that portion out.  He proposed replacing *that portion* with smarter
contextual filtering, but apparently has not yet done so.  This
particular patch is a great idea IMO, but probably isn't quite ready for
prime time.

FWIW, the patch you are referring to must be this one:

2000-10-04  Paul Sokolovsky  <>
        * pe-dll.c (make_one): Do not generate code thunk for DATA
        exports. (process_def_file): deduce DATA flag for
        auto-export sumbols.

Thanks for the clarification.
