Installing Windows import libraries is commonplace in GNU projects,
and yet I never saw those projects using WINDOWSENV or similar
tricks.  All we need is add a variable that would be mpty on other
systems and libgnumake-$(VERSION).dll on MS-Windows.

IOW, I still don't understand why would we need to do this the way you
suggest, if all that's missing is commands to install the import
