This was a stupid error in my hand edited patch

Hello Paul,

can you build comdlg32.dll if you have shell32.dll? If i run make clean in 
shell32 directory comdlg32.dll builds fine for me. If shell32 is there from a 
previous build, comdlg32.dll fails for me with the problems described above.

In short it can be said this way:

comdlg32.dll needs to be build shell32.dll and libuuid.a from mingw or from 
wine, but the "two files" must be used from one source either wine or mingw. 
It is not possible to use one file from wine and one file from mingw.

But this happend for me currently

When i build wine with mingw the Makefile uses shell32.dll from wine and 
libuuid from mingw. This gives me the uinresolved symbols.

Bye Stefan
