Since no one replied, I did some additional digging. It looks like we need to
switch the --windows option on if we want Comeau to accept __declspec options.
Same conclusion Vladimir Prus brought up a couple weeks back -- no one responded.
If you look at the information on the follow 2 pages you might become
convinced that this should be possible.
There was also a thread back on September 2003 discussing whether this was
supported yet by Comeau
It would be nice if someone from Metacomm could patch the --windows flag into
the build system for the next round to see if it would allow Comeau to work
with dll's on windows.
However, it doesn't seem like there's too much interest in fixing this issue.
So if no one responds I'll just mark the tests as expected failure and move
on -- I've already spent more time on this than I should have...
