Since you seem to be awake and looking at libtool, you might want to
take a look at the wrapper shell script generated to execute programs.
Under Cygwin & MinGW, there is a bug in that if the user specifies
-L/usr/local/bin then the script updates PATH to look for DLLs in
/usr/local/bin before looking in the directory with libtool's
uninstalled DLLs. This is a *big* problem if the installation prefix
is also /usr/local because then some older DLL is used rather than the
one we just built. Unfortunately, the path decision making comes from
the innards of libtool itself so the fix may not be easy to figure
out or the fix may break something else.
