digitalmars.D - coffimplib error with libmysql.dll under windows

I have been trying to convert the MySQL DLL on Windows to OMF format using
coffimplib so I can use it in D. When I run the tool, it invariably gives me an
error: "missing archive signature". I can't fathom what this means, and I can't
get the tool to give me any kind of meaningful output. Anyone have any thoughts
as to what I'm doing wrong here?

Thanks!

coffimplib is meant for Microsoft's .lib files, not a dll.  What you 
need to do is

implib /s libmysql.lib libmysql.dll

The /s is necessary for C linkage.
