I mostly agree with Björn here. In my opinion the reason to drop DLLPOSTFIX would be to make the makefiles clearer. Not so much to make the library names more "readable". So if we keep DLLPOSTFIX, just unify its value on all platforms, that doesn't really affect the complexity of the makefiles at all. We just lose one  non-conditional simple assignment line from each platform-specific .mk file.

(Not that the use of $(DLLPOSTFIX) is a major uglifying factor in the makefiles; but any simplification helps.)
