Problem with libtool + Microsoft CL & LINK

I'm having trouble getting a small package I wrote to build on
Win32 with Microsoft's compiler and linker (using Cygwin for the
Unix toolchain side of things).  Here are the relevant lines from my

    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 =

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 "./.libs/libsimpprof.lib"
    make[1]: *** [sptest.exe] Error 2

My .libs directory contains the following:

    libsimpprof-0.dll  libsimpprof-0.lib  libsimpprof.lai

Why is libtool generating libsimpprof-0.lib but trying to link with
libsimpprof.lib?  And how can I convince libtool to use the same
name for both -- without sacrificing portability to other platforms?
I'm using libtool v1.4.2, automake v1.5, and autoconf v2.52.

Thanks in advance,
