Just FYI, I've received confirmation from Rob (Sisyphus) that the patch
fixes the problem building (and using) the PGPLOT module under 5.10:

| Works fine - thanks muchly.

Therefore I think the patch should be applied. I know Craig suggested a
more comprehensive change to always mangle the name of the generated DLL

complaints about these current setup. It was just that we broke an
already existing workaround in the 5.10 release.
