Missed answering this one..

If you are passing in only one <dll>xx then it will always be the first
argument, or the first after any other options. The reason is because
what <dll>xx returns is always the produced shared lib first, then,
depending on platform, the link library for the shared lib. So if you
needed to mark it somehow you pass in some option as the last arg (like
--dll), and the <dll>xx always as the first input file. WHich would give
you a nice ".. --dll */xx.dll */xx.lib .." that you can interpret easily.
