It is not yet documented, because the support in gnulib is pretty recent
and the support in libtool is work-in-progress. Please let us know how
it works for you. Ultimately, these things should be documented in the
INSTALL file, which comes from Autoconf's documentation.

It is important to pass the right --host option. Passing a --build option
is often not needed. Whether you specify i586-pc-mingw32 or
i686-w64-mingw32 does not matter, since you don't want to use GNU
cross-compiling tools with these prefixes.

Gnulib sources change frequently, more frequently than zlib probably.

Sure it does.
