And while you play with PE format, I have noticed that binutils has a
different way
of considering Import Table size in DLLs.
Indeed if you take the same source code, for instance linpng and you
compile one with MS Visual
and the other with gcc/binutils and look at code generated you will see
that in Data directories
size of Import Table is only equal to Import Directory Table(IDT) with MS
Visual and is equal to 
IDT + ILT +DLLName with gcc.
I think ktietz already knows that and has a patch for it that also fix some
other minor issues.
