I looked and timed out. I don't speak nmake too good but thus far it looks like an artefact of the way the dll is built "Put in appropriate references for everything". Also I cannot get over this suspicion that the build is using the linker to create the archive ("you are in a maze of nested symbol indirection, all alike").

I'll look a bit more this weekend but thusfar I'm coming up dry I'm hoping someone with stronger nmake-fu than I will dive it.
