This is already handled in a sufficiently nice and clean way, that is?

So, why isn't dlltool being used?  BTW, dllwrap is deprecated.

It is!

Current versions of GCC require -shared in the link step to produce the
dll.  The -dll -mdll switches are deprecated.

yes! and libtool does not use -dll/-mdll IIRC.

Current versions of the linker can produce as well as use the foo.def
import files.

Oh, that's news to me. So, one can take the _linker_ to produce a
def file which contains the --dynamic-export-symbols? How is that?
I've looked into dlltool -z too long, it seems...

(and btw, _how_ recent that my be? ye know, these things happen to
 be unresolved for years now....)

cheers, guido
