This is nice to know. The MFC has been subject of long threads here.
good to know that we can give some alternatives when people ask. (My 
general idea is that people who minimally care with cross-compiler (not
mention cross-platform) compatibility would never choose to build an 
application upon MFC - and that's probably the reason for why MFC has
loosing some ground and interest... )

I once made a small sed script for that, but probably it's not as
as winemaker.pl. But we do have a fairly complete MS Dev Studio
to Unix Makefiles converter. It's availabable on 
http://mefriss1.swan.ac.uk/~jfonseca/gnu-win32/software/msds/ and it
soon be included on a "mingw-utils" package. Perhaps that might be 
interesting for the WINE Lib project too?
