Erm, the fix is fine, but what caused the breakage in the first place?
Surely this hasn't been broken all the time?

For me, it has been broken all the time: It's the first time I've succeeded
building a working DLL with mingw and libtool 1.5.x.

Maybe something about my setup is particular: it's Windows XP, NTFS, with
"security" permission settings that have been modified by someone else. In
other words, it may be not the default config, but it's a config you can
easily end up with, without seeing other obvious breakage.

I have noticed that Windows XP SP2 decides if a filesystem is trusted or not. If the filesystem is not trusted, then it seems that the execute bits are removed.

This has been a problem for me under Cygwin since I typically access source code via SMB to a Unix system. Oddly, MSYS does not experience this problem.
