...And other linker errors came from not having this in dsss.conf
    buildflags += -version=CONTROL_EXAMPLE_MAIN

For the record, my working dsss.conf for dwt-win build of the 
controlexample is:

buildflags += -version=CONTROL_EXAMPLE_MAIN
debugflags +=-g -debug
buildflags +=-J.
buildflags +=-I../..
version(Windows) {
buildflags +=-S..\..\..\dwt-win\lib
buildflags +=-L/SUBSYSTEM:windows:5

Most of this pain of mine would have been avoided if there were working 
dsss.conf files included with the dwt-samples project.

Anyway, any idea why those images on buttons and such don't show up in 
the controlexample?
