The TNR variable gets replaced by mkunroll - i.e. the makefile you're
looking at is not the one that is actually used, but a template for
the actual template will contain SHL1VERSIONOBJDEP, SHL2VERSIONOBJDEP, ....

:d means directory portion of the path in NAME,

:f → filename portion of the file, is combined with the subsitution
(:s) of .o → .obj

$(subst,$(DLLPOSTFIX),_dflt $(SHL$(TNR)TARGET))
alternate way of doing a substitution
$(VERSIONOBJ:f:s/.o/.obj/) can also be written as
$(subst,.o,.obj $(VERSIONOBJ:f))
i.e. it replaces $(DLLPOSTFIX) in $(SHL$(TNR)TARGET) by _dflt

$(DLLPOSTFIX) in $(SHL$(TNR)TARGET) is replaced by _dflt

last but not least foo{bar}baz means:
for every token in bar prepend foo, and append baz, i.e. evaluate to
"foobar1baz foobar2baz foobar3baz" if bar actually results in "bar1
bar2 bar3"

Nope, that above recipe is too late/only a fraction of the situations
that need to be adjusted. But for a start setting DLLPOSTFIX to "" in
the platform-specific macros should work.
