Actually my problem is little bit different. I'm creating a library
for Linux which utilizes some features of other Linux libraries +
additionally I wand to utilize the avifil32.dll for the AVI stuff. The
architecture is somethink like

|Linux Executable| --uses--> |Linux *.a and *.so libraries| +
+ |my Linux *.so library| --uses--> |Other Linux *.a and *.so
libraries + WineLib|

It's very pitty that we have all the features of Win32 *.dll libraies
reimplemened for Linux but can't use them without the emulator.

By the way what exactly causes the segmentation fault during the
execution ?

A also tried to compile and link WineLib * applications using
normal g++ for compilation and linking - just ignoring all the
resource files - and it worked. I only had probles of some unresolved
references when I link compiled in such a way dynamic libraries to an
executable. Some stuff (which I guess <winebuild> adds) was
unresolved. I also tried to link additionally the stuff generated by
<winebuild> to the libraries but at the end i got the same
segmantation fault :-( 

Please HeLp !!! ;-)
