Sure. The same should be done at least for OLE dlls too.

On the related note:
Lawson Whitney reported that juno 2.0.11 checks version info of oleaut32.dll and
with my recent patch (which has disabled searching of version resources if dll was
loaded but version resources were not found) refuses to load.

Well, I added version info into built-in oleaut32.dll, but here another problem arised:
LoadLibraryExA explicitly checks for LOAD_LIBRARY_AS_DATAFILE, and then uses SearchPathA
to locate a dll. Since SearchPathA can't find built-in dlls LoadLibraryExA returns 0.

With the attached patch my test program is now able to retrieve version info for
built-in oleaut32.dll, but I didn't manage to avoid resolving imports for built-in
dlls, because they are register themself from the code generated by winebuild.

I tried to propagate 'flags' starting from BUILTIN_LoadLibraryExA, but failed.

Now the question: How to load built-in dll without resolving its imports?
