Actually, just recently I was thinking about making winemaker use msvcrt
by default and add a --no-msvcrt option to disable that behavior.
The rationale is that on Windows most developpers use Visual C++, and
Visual C++ uses msvcrt by default. And since one of the goals is to make
it easy to migrate Visual C++ code to Winelib, generating makefiles that
use msvcrt would make sense (it also why we link with advapi32,
comdlg32, etc, this is the default set of libraries Visual C++ links
