but, we are compiling C so the names shouldn't be decorated.

undecorating yields the same name:

c:\hannes\>undname DllMain(at)12
Microsoft (R) C++ Name Undecorator
Copyright (C) Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

Undecoration of :- "DllMain(at)12"
is :- "DllMain(at)12"

compiling a little test program:
cat >dllmain.c <<EOF
#include <windows.h>

DllMain(HANDLE module, DWORD reason, LPVOID reserved)
    return TRUE;

yields the same exported symbol

C:\Hannes>cl /c dllmain.c
Microsoft (R) 32-bit C/C++ Optimizing Compiler Version 14.00.50727.762 
for 80x86
Copyright (C) Microsoft Corporation.  All rights reserved.

C:\Hannes>dumpbin /symbols dllmain.obj
Microsoft (R) COFF/PE Dumper Version 8.00.50727.762
Copyright (C) Microsoft Corporation.  All rights reserved.

Dump of file dllmain.obj


008 00000000 SECT3  notype ()    External     | _DllMain(at)12

When creating a new dll with VC 6.0, same here

C:\Hannes\testdll\Debug>dumpbin /symbols testdll.obj | grep Main
01B 00000000 SECT6  notype ()    External     | _DllMain(at)12

as with libecpg

C:\Hannes\pgsql\Debug\libecpg>dumpbin /symbols misc.obj | grep Main
05E 000007B0 SECT5  notype ()    External     | _DllMain(at)12

Am I missing something?
