  Indeed it did.  With the attached patch, build and test both ran to
completion without any errors.  As far as I can see (thanks, Peter R.) the
_DLL definition conveys information from compiler to linker to tell it which
multilib variant to link against.  We have the -shared-libgcc/-static-libgcc
option in the gcc driver and the related specs to serve the same purpose on GNU.

  One disclaimer: this could have side-effects on MinGW, and should be
verified there to make sure, if it's a supported platform.  (Hopefully it'll
be equally correct there, though).
