That's a possibility, but in general Wine tries to avoid building
PE DLLs for support libraries, mainly because of the added maintenance
burden. Instead, Wine is perfectly capable of using Unix ELF DSOs shipped
by an OS distribution, or provided by the user. If libldap_r.so is not
present Wine will gracefully fail loading wldap32.dll, as if that DLL is
not present.
