Actually, in this case it is. The winsup file instantiates
the macro DECLARE_CYGWIN_DLL, which instantiates _cygwin_dll_entry AT 12
not _cygwin32_dll_entry AT 12 I've referenced in both dlltool.c and
dllwrap.c. It's not a big deal, only that people will have to explicitly
specify ``--entry __cygwin_dll_entry AT 12'' each time instead of the
default working for them when building a DLL.

The entry point is not exported from cygwin.dll, so the new aliases for
backward compatibility don't apply here.
