bug#8550: A libtool question (trying to compile with MS VC++ from VS 2008 SP1)

I am a consultant working for a large client on a high-profile
[trying to build libtool-2.4 with MSVC++]
I'm trying to introduce use of open source software instead of
proprietary systems. The particular project uses Python for the
client, with OpenSSL for secure communications and a dynamic engine to
talk to a hardware security device.
This lash-up requires engine_pkcs11 and libp11, so in turn I need
I have been able to compile everything with "pure Microsoft" tools
During development, as a workaround, I'm using MinGW/MSYS. This
works. However, I'd like to eliminate that dependency (various .dll
files) if possible.
I've seen tantalizing hints of MS VC++ support in a couple of posts on
Savannah but when I try to build libtool with the MS compiler I'm
getting stuck. I have set up a PATH that includes MSYS for the tools
but omits gcc. This almost works.
I attach a log of the current spot where my build fails.
Thanks for any help you can give me.
