Unfortunately I have the same problems building fvwm-2.0.46. First I have
compiled the X11R6.3 using the actual patches fix-01, fix-02 and
X11R6_3f2-b19.diff. X clients included in the X11R6.3 distributions works
fine (like twm.exe), but if I try to link an other executable I get garbage
in the Import table (using NT Explorers Quick view.)
That is the linking output:
gcc --verbose -o fvwm2 add_window.o     bindings.o      borders.o
.o      colormaps.o     colors.o        complex.o       decorations.o
        focus.o         functions.o     fvwm.o  icons.o         menus.o
misc.o m
odule.o         move.o  placement.o     read.o  resize.o        style.o

I had also executed the ld.exe with --verbose: Only b19 stuff will be used.

That is the begin of .idata:
