Like I said originally:

Dumping the headers is necessary for stupid installers that map DLL files
manually and rummage around in the headers to figure out versions and
stuff ... simply having an empty file isn't enough for all of them I'm
afraid :(

The DLLs wine ships aren't actually PE DLLs so symlinking to them directly
won't do the trick.
