Yes, I think it would.

This is true as well. Sorry that I missed these. I was in a hurry to get this 
thing working on Windows since that was where we urgently needed the 5.0 
version to replace the old Finnish spell checker extension that did not work 
with 64 bit LibreOffice.

It should not be necessary to link the libraries statically although you can 
do that if you want.

I will try to get these fixes committed this week or next week. Thanks for 
noticing this!
