It's probably also possible to generate these at package build time by 
invoking the appropriate commands. If it's the lib*.a files, you can 
probably just build-depend on wine-dev and run i586-mingw32msvc-dlltool 
or something on the appropriate Wine .def file to get a mingw32 import 
library in .a format.

I'm not sure about the wintools libs, but if they're actually needed, 
there must be a way to build them... even if it might take making 
official mingw-built packages of glib and libidl to include in the distro...

Well, I've been planning to try to make a Debian package of gecko, but 
won't have time to finish it before the holidays.
