Not much as far as I can figure out. You can get some idea of what it
does by typing "dlltool --help", which gives a brief summary. You can
also look at the Cygwin readmes and FAQ for examples of dlltool in
use (for adding .reloc sections to executables, and for building DLLs).

That's a good question. I don't think there actually is one. However,
Windows 95 at least you can use the Quick View option on the DLL to get
a list of exports, which you can then laboriously produce your own .def
file from, and then run dlltool on the .def file.
There's probably a better way to do it, but I don't know it.
