Urk. No, dlltool.c has the following snippet:
#define TMP_ASM "dc.s"
#define TMP_HEAD_S "dh.s"
#define TMP_HEAD_O "dh.o"
#define TMP_TAIL_S "dt.s"
#define TMP_TAIL_O "dt.o"
#define TMP_STUB "ds"
Looks pretty ugly. I mean, you *could*
#define TMP_ASM mktemp("dcXXXXXX.s")
or something, but then you're not error checking the result...
