OK.  This is a Libtool issue, not an Autoconf one.  Cc:ing bug-libtool
for that purpose.

Please let us know where the MINGW32 problems are.  If you did not use
`-no-undefined' while linking, please do so.  Maybe that solves your

Indeed.  Confirmed with both branch-1-5 and HEAD.  Thanks for reporting

Well, hope this gets you set for the release:  use

| case "$host" in
|   *-*-linux* | *-*-darwin*)
|     ;;
|   *-*-mingw32*)
|     ;;
| esac

and make sure all of that comes before AC_PROG_LIBTOOL.

I'm inclined to "fix" this by adjusting the documentation, not the
implementation of these macros.
