It does not. The reason seems to be that $wrappers_required
does not get set to "no" since $build_libtool_libs is "yes"
in this snippet from the libtool script:
      case $host in
      *cygwin* | *mingw* )
        if test "$build_libtool_libs" != yes; then
        if test "$need_relink" = no || test "$build_libtool_libs" !=
yes; then

$build_libtool_libs gets set to "yes" in the very beginning
of the libtool script and is not changed after that.

If I add this project specific brown-paper-bag hack to the
mix, "make install" works correctly:
	if test "$outputname" = "xsendbut.exe" ; then

That patch is in there, the guy who merged libtool-1.9-cvs
into the project claims that the only difference between our
libtool version and 1.9f is the version number (and a totally
unrelated local FreeBSD fix)...

BTW, this is the command that generates the wrapper script
when it shouldn't:
/bin/sh ../libtool --mode=link --tag=CC gcc  -g -O2 -D_REENTRANT
-D_THREAD_SAFE -DDEBUG -g -Wall -Wpointer-arith -Wsign-compare
-Wstrict-prototypes -Wswitch -Wmissing-prototypes -Wreturn-type -Wshadow
-o xsendbut.exe  xsendbut.o -L/usr/X11R6/lib -lX11

I should perhaps note that xsendbut resides in a directory
where other executables are built that do indeed depend on
uninstalled libtool libs, if that is at all relevant?

On the off chance that you (or someone else) want to get
first hand experience of the problem, try libgii from cvs
available from:

cvs login 
cvs -z3 co ggi-core/libgii
cd ggi-core/libgii
make install

xsendbut is in the demos subdir.
