You are talking about static vs. shared libraries.

This is a big and important difference, much more than just endings
of filenames. And you can't easily convert one into another.

The mingw-cross-env project specializes on static libraries, which
is quite unusual compared to the "rest of the world", but has also
some interesting advantages, especially for porting applications to
the Windows platform.
