I think we should split the GUIDS into two libraries in Wine:
libwine_uuid and libwine_dxguid, though it probably would not help with
this particular problem. However this should let msvcmaker generate the
right set of import libraries (currently it hard-codes the list of .lib
files to link to, including uuid.lib but not dxguid.lib).

For MinGW it would be harder though. This is using the crosstest target
in the regular makefiles, right?
Maybe a `echo $LIBS | sed s/libwine_/lib/` ?

What was your proposal already? Do you know why it was rejected?
