My use case is not really valid as is for Wine. I was experimenting with
running parts of Wine on Windows, but I needed to change some DLL names.
With this patch it's as easy as changing MODULE in files and
copying .spec file. This way I get renamed DLLs built correctly and
other DLLs depending on the new name without touching anything else.

The above is not really a reason to put it in Wine. However, I thought
that this behaviour is logical consequence of having MODULE and
IMPORTLIB separately in Makefiles (as opposed to, say, IMPORTLIB=1 and
using MODULE for its name), so I sent the patch.
