I assume by 'dbtool' you mean 'dlltool'?
This above step won't work. dlltool
won't make a proper '.a' file from a '.lib' or a '.dll' file. It only will make
an '.a' file from a '.def' file, which contains a list of exported names from
the dll. Ismael Jurado (ismaelj.hotmail.com) just posted a program that will
make def files from dlls last sat april 12.
