Well, that worked; I got it to compile cleanly, at least. Unfortunately,
Installshield is still failing with the same error. The same thing happens
when I try the patched version of wine-20030115 :(

Anyway, what I had to do to get wine-20030508 to compile with the patch
was touch stdole2.spec.c and stdole32.spec.c, and change two lines in (all of this in wine-20030508/dlls/oleaut32):

#ALTNAMES  = ole2disp.dll typelib.dll
ALTNAMES  = ole2disp.dll typelib.dll stdole32.tlb stdole2.tlb

#SPEC_SRCS16 = $(ALTNAMES:.dll=.spec)
SPEC_SRCS16 = ole2disp.spec typelib.spec stdole32.spec stdole2.spec

Not very elegant, but it seems to work. Please let me know if you have any
other suggestions regarding how to get around the Installshield issue.
