proj4 statically compiled into postgis-1.4.dll

The win32 package of postgis 1.4 is statically compiled proj4 into postgis-1.4.dll, while still distributing libproj.dll. It would be really great to have proj4 linked as a shared library because I have created a custom version of proj4 and would rather not go through the whole postgis compiling process.
I believe the issue is because missing steps are required in http://trac.osgeo.org/postgis/wiki/UsersWikiWinCompile to produce the shared library. See http://www.webalice.it/marco.pasetti/qgis+grass/BuildFromSource.html#PROJ.4 for instructions.
This has been checked with EDB stack builder version and the http://www.postgis.org/download/windows pg8.4 versions.
