I recommend that this wait until the libtool changes go in, and we have
an official libtool-with-autoimport-support cygwin package.

Yeah, this may be a long time from now -- but porting DLL's without
autoimport, *especially* the the package is already (old) libtoolized --
is a royal PITA.  Until then, "disk space is cheap"(tm).
