Well, not mainly, but there is certainly an emphasis toward portable
projects.  Sometimes compromises have to be made, and that's when this
may matter.

Stuff that is completely unportable (like your dlltool stuff) simply
stands a smaller chance to be supported "nicely".  Since you can still
get what you want by simply using plain `make' rules and syntax, GNU
make's even, I don't see any problem with that.
