Hello Rodrick,
Thanks a lot for your advices, now I am able to use winemaker to generate (it take me a long time, lots of copiler errors there :) ). 
But somehow when I run my application under wine:
%wine ./ping.exe
It just terminate itself. (I suppose it should wait for user's input here) but it return back to prompt state:
Did you happen to know what's the problem, I checked it and found it seems the works, but somehow terminate the whole program... really wield.
All the best.

The tool winedump is used if I'm right to create a "stub" (empty) dll from a 
M$ dll. In your case since you have the source code and all you should use 
winemaker. There are dozens of options to give it to create an exectuble, a 
library and so on. Just copy the full windows source over and winemaker 
should create makefiles.

Good Luck,
