You mean I should edit /usr/share/libtool/libtool.m4 and change this
part, that is already specific to cygwin?

  # func_win32_libid is a shell function defined in
  lt_cv_deplibs_check_method='file_magic ^x86 archive import|^x86 DLL'

It sounds hackish.  Terribly hackish.  If it's a normal thing you need
to do at least for some applications under cygwin, why not have some
kind of a switch for that included into official libtool?

Or have I missed something?
