Incorrect library names on Cygwin + MSCV CL/LINK

In line 2041 of libtool.m4 (libtool v1.4.2), library_names_spec is set
to a .dll file and a .lib file.  The .dll file is set to the library
name plus the first component of the release number, which is fine.
However, the .lib file is set to the library name only.  This makes
programs that link with the library unable to find it.

For example, here's are the relevant lines from my Makefile.am:

     lib_LTLIBRARIES = libsimpprof.la
     libsimpprof_la_SOURCES = simpprof.c simpprof_int.h simpprof.h
     libsimpprof_la_LDFLAGS = -no-undefined
     include_HEADERS = simpprof.h

     noinst_PROGRAMS = sptest
     sptest_SOURCES = sptest.c simpprof.h
     sptest_LDADD = libsimpprof.la

That is, I'm trying to build a shared library plus a test program
which uses that library.  The problem I'm encountering is that libtool
is trying to link sptest.obj with ./.libs/libsimpprof.lib, which
doesn't exist:

     /bin/sh ./libtool --mode=link cl  -g   -o sptest.exe  sptest.obj 

     cl -g -o .libs/sptest.exe sptest.obj  ./.libs/libsimpprof.lib

     LINK : fatal error LNK1181: cannot open input file 
     make[1]: *** [sptest.exe] Error 2

My .libs directory contains the following:

     libsimpprof-0.dll  libsimpprof-0.lib  libsimpprof.lai
     libsimpprof-0.exp  libsimpprof.la

The solution is to modify libtool.m4 so that sptest is linked with
libsimpprof-0.lib, not libsimpprof.lib.  Here's a patch file to do
just that:
