Sorry, I just washed ie4.0, and I can't do a thing with it ;^)
but this one should be right.

You have 2 choices that I know of, use MS link32.exe, or build .def files,
and from that make a libname.a type library, inclosed is a script ot make
.def files from .lib files, if You, or anyone else who reads this has a
copy of crtdll.lib, or oldnames.lib, please run this script on it and post
the resulting .def file back to the list or to Me ;^).
to make the library itself, run
dlltool --as=as -k --dllname "name".dll --output-lib "name".a --def
where name is the name of the dll you are linking to.
echo $1|tr A-Z a-z
if [ x"$1" = x"" ];then
echo "shell script to generate .def files from .LIB files
$0 filename ..."
for file in $*;do
echo LIBRARY `basename $file .LIB` \
> `tlow \`basename $file .LIB\`.def`; \
echo EXPORTS >> `tlow \`basename $file .LIB\`.def`; \
nm --extern-only $file |egrep '^........ [TR]' \
|fgrep -v '\$AA C@_0 @@' \
|sed -e 's/[^_]*_//' \
-e 's/[^?]*?//' \
>> `tlow \`basename $file .LIB\`.def`;
