Ok.  So libtool is probably still broken.  I'm not going to fix
libtool and cannot allow myself to spend too much extra time on this.
(Actually, I've spent so much time on Guile and Cygwin the past week,
that I had complaints from a Lily developer; we're gearing up for
1.6). In the meantime, I must see Guile being packaged.

I've offered you a, as I think, fairly clean and concise workaround to
build libtool DLLs with mknetrel, with Guile as a nice working example
for others to follow.  As it stands, I don't see a good way now to use
mknetrel to build Guile, so I probably won't bother you with patches
to build Guile (or libtool packages) with mknetrel.
