Failed to build popt 1.7 DLL with libtool 1.5

OK, I *know* I'm doing something wrong, I just can't figure out what it
is.  I unpacked popt-1.7.tar.gz and ran the following to try to build
the popt DLL:

  $ tar xzf popt-1.7.tar.gz; cd popt-1.7
  $ libtoolize --copy --force
  You should update your `aclocal.m4' by running aclocal.
  $ aclocal
  $ autoconf
  $ patch -b -p1 < ../popt-1.7-1.patch
  patching file
  patching file findme.c
  patching file popt.c
  patching file poptconfig.c
  $ ./configure
  $ make

After doing this, however, I don't end up with a cygpopt*.dll file
anywhere in the popt-1.7. What step(s) am I missing?
