I think the issue is, since zsh is built using libtool (right?) libtool
ought to DTRT.  Since it is not, it seems something is going wrong in
the build process; libtool doesn't "know" that it's supposed to be
building cygwin libraries.

So, what *else* is libtool doing wrong, as it happily runs through its
(linux? sun? sgi?)-specific code...
