Thanks Alexandre. I tried to do this a while back but was having 
problems understanding something in the makefiles for my "make implib" 
rule. A fix for the import libs would be great because I have this same 
problem when building certain dlls under mingw and keeping the mingw 
win32api package and wine in sync is a big waste of time for me.

cannot f
ind -lwinspool.drv
C:\mingw\bin\dllwrap.exe: C:\mingw\bin\gcc exited with status 1
make: *** [comdlg32.dll] Error 1
