[Scons-users] .def file generation issue with SCons

Apparently cmake does this by using a helper executable to extract the
symbols from the object files.
It'd be doable, but IMHO general best practice is to use
__dllexport(symbol) and then for non-window platforms define that as a
macro which does nothing.
I've used that many times.
