I've attached a patch that makes ld default to using 
--enable-auto-import.  However, I've also just submitted two patches to 

The first attempts to fix the "pe_data_import_dll" variable defined in 
pe.em, used in pe-dll.c problem.  (The previous situation was ugly which 
was bad enough, but worse, it caused build failures on 
non-DLL-supporting pei386 platforms, like arm-epoc-pe.  I'm waiting for 
someone on one of those other affected platforms to verify that it works 
for them)

The second fixes the documentation to clarify the recent long long 

I will also post both of those patches here, in a followup message to 
this one.  It's up to you, Chris, if you want to wait for those other 
two patches to be peer-reviewed and then apply all three, or just go 
ahead with this auto-import-default patch right away.  Or punt and do 
nothing at all. :-)
