So I just did a clean reinstall of Win98 in VMWare (without installing
VMWare tools which also seems to install MFC42.DLL), and even on a completely
clean Windows _98_ system MFC42.DLL is already present in C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM.
Although I see the point that MFC42.DLL is quite a large undertaking and
probably not the most vital thing to wine, I believe that it would be incorrect
to simply write it off as something that never needs to get implemented
natively in wine as it is:
(a) present by default in Windows versions as early as 98 (the only one I
checked to be fair)
(b) required by many programs, many of which do not install it (even Microsoft
redistributables that require it such as Windows Scripting Host don't install

Anyhow, just my 2 cents.
