What you're really asking for here is support for some automatically
generated rules that use dlltool, right?  How should such a rule look
like, what should it do portably(!), and why would a portable project
ever need such a rule when it could just use Libtool?

If you have to write your own (unportable) rules anyway, then really
there is nothing else that I see that could be done for you.

Or do you just want

put in every  You can already have that, just use AC_SUBST

No.  While libtool happens to set ${DLLTOOL}, it doesn't really use it
either.  I think it used to at some point in the past.

I'm starting to be a bit puzzled.  I simply don't know what you want.
