The last time I used the impgen code in libtool, it worked fine for me.  
However, I must admit that I didn't test cygwin builds at all for release 
1.4, and had planned a quick 1.4.1 release if I subsequently found any 
problems.  As you probably know, the MLB merge is taking most of my attention 
at the moment, though I will happily add any patches to the queue if you find 
a solution.

The twisty turny code for cygwin was written back in the days of b19, and 
patched to continue working as new cygwin releases came along.  After DJ 
Delorie's linker patches made it into cygwin-1.0 (IIRC) I tried to remove the 
whole impgen gubbins from libtool, but got flamed by people who needed 
libtool to continue working with b19.  Thanks to Paul Sokolovsky's new ld 
patches, we no longer need the majority of libtool's Windows hacks -- so at 
some point in the not-too-distant future I plan to remove the current mess in 
favour of Robert Collins' streamlined version.  People who like the beta era 
of Cygwin can continue to use libtool-1.3.5.
