It seems that in fact this is the linker that create the lib... in fact
the output is like that: ...\myprog.exe ...\myprog.rsp
Creating library ...\myprog.lib and object ...\myprog.exp

I find something in the documentation of linker I used:
"When LINK creates a program that contains exports (usually a DLL), it
also builds a .lib file, unless an .exp file was used in the build. You
can control the import library file name with the /IMPLIB option."

I did not succeed to re-create a small project that create this library.
Project I build are too much complex, I need to analyse my project to
know if somewhere inside there is something that do exports.

As I have some other things to do, and this problem is not blocker for
me, I cannot investigate right now... but as soon I have time I will
check, and give you the answer of this problem.

Thanks again Vladimir Prus and Jurgen Hunold.
