I wish you hadn't done this.

As I said in several other posts now and in the past, I expect the
Windows DLLs to be build by a simple relink of the static libraries --
*not* as a complete separate target (or, worse MSVC "configuration").

If we do this, then we can simply link the unit tests with the static
libs, and link the command-line utilities with the DLLs -- the tests
will be valid since both variants of the library contain identical code.

I think this is much better than complicating the build system with
source vs. library link optins, and we _do_ want to build both the
static and the dynamic libraries.

(I'm not sure whether we want to provide completely statically-linked
versions of the command line tools by default.)
