This is what I wanted to do as a first step, sorry if I wasn't clear enough.

Let me restate the plan so far:

1. Unify DLLPOSTFIX values. Set it in one common .mk if possible

  This can be done now

2. Remove DLLPOSTFIX usage in the build system

  This can be done bit by bit 
  There is no fundamental reason to keep it for 4.0 but it can well be left
  as-is until then.
