Very good.  Well, guys, I still don't know why you need that .lib file 
there.  As far as I can see in quick tests, mingw kicks butt like linux 
and does not need it.  If you would like to explain it, it would be 
great as I may be able to suggest something else.

Without that piece of info, the current solutions I can propose (it 
would be good if you were to pick or vote on one please):
	* configure flag to select behavior between mingw and msys, as done in 
cmake.  msys follows closer to autotools, mingw does not.  Default is 
msys for back compatibility.  No files added, but more configure bloat, 
probably a big patch and will take me longer to add and debug.  Flag is 
unique to the mixed platform.  I'll need a contact person for any 
eventual questions or to make sure I follow the current programming 
procedures in configure.
	* SLIB_UNINSTALL_EXTRA_CMD and its opposite do a recursive make 
invocation (under mingw) to likely a new aux make file and rule that 
does both installs.  Likely adds a new auxiliary make file and a new 
	* Concatenation of SLIB_UNINSTALL_EXTRA_CMD with two commands directly 
in configure.  Easiest, but kind of a hack for any future expansion. 
Will lead to Makefile with a line of over 80 chars for that SLIB_* stuff.
	* Me do nothing, as I have a solution already.  I stick to my own
