I had an idea about this long time ago: why not teach libtool to name
the libtool wrapper scripts that are used in the <working dir> with
suffix .exe, it then should see that they are already there and won't
relink them every make call?

If we prefix every PATH statement with $DESTDIR the resulting .la file
will contain wrong paths? (E.g. libdir='$DESTDIR/usr/lib'). But then a
minor fix on these .la files would be all to be done before packaging up
the binary package.
