Yes, it works quite well (on Win9x at least). You can specify a .def
file when building an .exe with CL (or LINK), and it produces an
import .LIB. With gcc -mno-cygwin it's quite a bit more convoluted,
but it's possible. I came to the conclusion that with gcc you must
mark the exported functions with __declspec(dllexport), the .def file
is ignored. (And you must do the dance with multiple gcc and dlltool
passes.) I might be wrong...
