There is not specific builtin support in Lilypond, but you could
use ordinary text scripts to obtain what you want.

Try something like
d4_"x"_"x"_"x"_" "_"x"_"x"_"x"
g_"x"_"x"_"x"_" "_"o"_"o"_"o"

If you want symbols that look better than the "o" and "x", you
could look in Appendix A.5 of the Reference Manual to see a list
of all available symbols in the music font supplied with Lilypond
(look in the PS or PDF version, the list in the HTML version is
truncated). For example, you may want
#'(music "noteheads-2xcircle") instead of "x"

Also, you might have to fiddle a bit with the vertical alignment
using (raise ....), see the section on Text Markup in the manual.

is it possible to get some kind of "fingering tablature" for a tin
whistle displayed under the staff?  I.e. something like this where X
means closed hole, and O means open hole (and something for a shaded

  X       X
  X       X
  X       X

  X       O

Pardon the ugly picture that does not resemble anything that lilypond
would produce.  :-)
