static and import library have got the same name under MSVC?

Hi there,

when generating a MSVC 2005 solution for building PhysFS with static and 
shared library targets enabled I had a strange behavior. The import 
library for physfs.dll as well as the static library are names 
physfs.lib. Because both files are placed in the same directory this 
leads to one file overwriting each other during build.

Is this a bug or a feature?
