Well, the .def file that winebuild generates have references to stubs
that are implemented in the .spec.c. This could of course be fixed
by a simple if statement somewhere, I guess.

However I'm not sure that there aren't other things that might be needeed
so I generated and compiled .spec.c just in case.

In any case the first part of the patch (winebuild.diff) is needed even
to generate the .def file so please apply that regardless.

Yes. But that could just as well be done in .spec.c
like on Unix couldn't it?

However I understand if you think winebuild2.diff is a little
hacky. I'm not 100% satisfied with it myself.

So what do you suggest?

Is the debug channels really the only problem?
