using libtool to create shared library while linking to static library N

I am using libtool and cl on NT to create a dll (.la, .lib, .dll
[libtool obtained through cygwin, version 1.4e].
To create the dll, I need to link to ws2_32.lib as well as some other libs.
The ws2_32.lib is in the VC98/lib directory while the ws2_32.dll is in the
WINNT/system32 directory. I get the warning below from libtool which leads
to a number of unresolved symbols; this makes me believe that the warning is
actually an error and libtool does not include the libs in the linking

The warning is:
*** Warning: Trying to link with static lib archive
*** I have the capability to make that library automatically link in when
*** you link to this library.  But I can only do this if you have a
*** shared version of the library, which you do not appear to have
*** because the file extensions .lib of this argument makes me believe
*** that it is just a static archive that I should not used here.

The same warning message is repeated for each one of the libs I am trying to
link with.

Can I do what I want to do using libtool? If yes, how? If no, when will
libtool be able to support this linking capability? NOTE that I cannot
create a since I do not
have source code for the socket library.

The following is my, I tried without the line -no-undefined but
nothing changed.

INCLUDES = -Ic:/projects/ASDEST/PTHREADS/Pre-built/include \
libASDEST_CORE_la_SOURCES = asdest.cpp ASDESTException.cpp NameService.cpp
libASDEST_CORE_la_LDFLAGS = -no-undefined
libASDEST_CORE_la_DEPENDENCIES = asdest.h ASDESTExceptions.h asdestxml.h
c:/projects/ASDEST/xerces-c-src1_6_0/Build/Win32/VC6/Debug/xerces-c_1D.lib \
                                    c:/progra~1/micros~4/VC98/Lib/ws2_32.lib \

Thanks for your help.
