I've attached a quick untested patch for mingw, should uninstall the
same lib installed by SLIB_INSTALL_EXTRA_CMD. Though I am somewhat 
confused as I thought the SLIB_INSTALL_EXTRA_CMD was installing an 
import lib yet it seems to be installing the DLL with a .lib suffix 
instead of .dll. Also it looks like gcc is creating an import lib with 
the suffix of .dll.a which is not installed.
Kept to the same style as used in the rest of mingw section of configure.
Also cygwin has similar behaviour, looks like it creates an import lib 
but never installs it.
Do both cygwin and mingw allow directly linking against DLLs and if so 
what is the point of creating import libs and in mingw case installing 
the DLL with a lib suffix?
Guess its time to fix my Windows install :)
