>   -L../../wine-20010731/dlls -o test.spec.c -spec test.spec
this part should be run with '-sym test.tmp.o' as an additional option

as a remainder the step for building a Wine module are:
1/ build all .o from the .c files
2/ (relative)-link (ld -r) them into a $(module).tmp.o file
3/ remove all resolved symbols (strip --strip-unneeded
4/ translate the .spec file into .spec.c file (this include the
   of all the imports). The needed imports are in fact the unresolved
   symbols from $(module).tmp.o. So you need to pass this to winebuild
5/ compile the .spec.c into a .o file
6/ do the final linking (normally, all unresolved symbols from
   should be present in .spec.o file)

so you missed steps 2&3 (and part of 4). using winemaker is really a
good idea
here... just my 2 cents
