I don't know, maybe MSVC will complain, but I don't see why it had to.
All symbols should be exported properly, but maybe you are right and
the one marked with import can cause problem,
because they are in the same library and not imported from another, is
it really a problem ? I have no idea (will try later)

But now --enable-mergelibs is used only for android, probably will be
used with --enable-lto for gcc
but will somebody use it on Windows ?
