uhhm, I'll try to find a way to do this ...;
but probably I will finally go to use Linux crosscompile, and just
specify all dependencies via configure paths; lets see how far I make it
...; just need some more time to check into it.

had no time yet to check into this further, but I guess you mean how the
binary itself is named, like f.e. libcurl-4.dll + libcurl-4.dll.a, etc;

yes, I'll try the next days, but no promise when that will happen; but I
will post here. I've just found that the .m32 makefile is somehow in bad
shape too, and needs some further tweaks ...
