Why do it this way? There are surely going to be more types than that in
the stdole32 file, or? And what's wrong with importing lots of structures,
if unused typedefs aren't stored in the type library? If the problem is
that mktyplib is inflexible, use midl instead. Then you can just import
oaidl.idl and be done with it, almost no future maintenance needed.

I'd go for dlls/oleaut32. Standard ole32 has no need for typelibs, they're
a feature of oleaut32.
