It's possible but there are some things you have to take care of
(for example, globals in .a's are treated differently than globals in
.dll's).  There's an example Makefile for building dll's out of .a files
on the cygwin site.  I also wrote a similar perl script which does the
same.  Its not perfect, but its a good starting point.
