This isn't a Libtool bug at all, but rather an installation bug, I

Exactly.  Did you compile GCC yourself but installed it in MSYS /bin?
I think that was the thing not to do, as it inhibits the automatic
path translation.  See
http://www.mingw.org/mingwfaq.shtml#faq-usingwithmsys for more info.

If that wasn't the case, then I'd like more information, such as how and
where you installed GCC, its version, and '../libtool --version'.
