I'll be posting full instructions on
http://www.skydancer.demon.co.uk/gnu-win32/ soon, but basically you use
the instructions for building a relocatable DLL. You need a
"--subsystem windows" on the ld lines and an appropriate "-e" parameter
for your DLL entry point ("-e D_DllMain@12" in my case). Depending on how
VC++ in configured, you'll need to do name mangling in your .def file -
assuming you have a stdcall function called Command() with two parameters.
