AFAIK, no. The loader would need to undertand the PE-COFF format
(which it doesn't -- yet?). But more importantly, DLLs tend to
interact with other Windows DLLs and with the NT kernel, and we don't
have an NTlator comparable to the linuxulator.

Of course, there's always /usr/ports/emulators/wine, which has the
limited ability to load DLLs.
