Not ready yet; see comments inline.

That's the whole purpose of the exeext patch, to fix parallel make. 
Before you remove patches, you first need to understand what the patch
does, why it was needed, and see if it still is or not.  If you don't
know, then you should be asking rather than just dropping them.

This is wrong; most of the DLLs will be -1.dll, so this needs to be
libanthy1 (but see below!!).

This looks mostly fine, except:

This should probably have -version-info flag as well upstream,
otherwise you'll have conflicts with libanthy0 and libanthy1.
