When I checked the bin directory of WinAVR however, there was no

Dunno, perhaps you can, but why do you want?  I personally think
libtool is a horrible GNUism, and it's not needed at all to create a
simple library.  make itself has enough support for handling
libraries, it can even update a single object module within a library
after recompiling it, although for typical microcontroller
environments, you could perhaps get away with always recreating the
entire library as well.

Libtool is just an adapter that tries to hide platform differences in more complex build environments. You shouldn't need it for a cross-compilation environment for an 8-bit processor.
