Linking against a dll

Is it possible to link a wine application against a Windows dll without 
calling LoadLibrary?  The documentation says:

> All the libraries you link with should be available as '.so' 
> libraries.  If one of them is available only in '.dll' form then 
> consult Building WineLib DLLs.

But, the chapter "Building WineLib DLLs" talks only about taking a 
Linux library and making it available as a library.  I could 
build a wrapper library that uses LoadLibrary and then calls each 
available functions, but I can also do that directly in my code, which 
I am trying to avoid if possible.
