Yes, you need to declare these symbols as those you want to import/export.  
Presumably, since the library does this already, you just need to find the
proper declaration of these symbols and make sure that all code that 
references them uses this.  Windows forces the notion of symbols being specified "exportable" by the use of an attribute.  You can find information about this in the email archives at least.
