More than that, is AC_LIBTOOL_WIN32_DLL (now [win32-dll]) actually
necessary anymore?  Cygwin doesn't need it, but I don't know about MinGW.

I'm not sure; AFAICS such a test didn't exist for linux in libtool 1.5.

With my patch to libtool and some tweaking of cygport, libtool 2.2 seems
to be working pretty well.  I will need to know your final decision
before committing the cygport patches, and I'll try to push an update as
soon as possible thereafter.
