This article is so old that it's very unlikely the orig. poster still
cares about seeing an answer here, but just FYI I will mention that I
believe that something like this does exist. Jose Fonseca, I recall, who
is active in MinGW development, wrote an awk script to do this. His site
seems to flicker in and out of existence (sorry, I don't have the url
but it's findable on Google).
