This update to CVS libtool resolves most of these problems:

2002-06-26  Bob Friesenhahn  <address@hidden>

        * libtool.m4 (AC_LIBTOOL_SYS_DYNAMIC_LINKER) [mingw]: Remove
        extraneous '=' character which appears in gcc 3.1
        -print-search-dirs output.
        Handle both upper and lower case drive letters when testing for
        Windows vs POSIX style path output from -print-search-dirs

The problem is that some directories searched by the compiler were
being ignored by libtool due to the two listed problems (particularly
the second one, which caused the MinGW libs to be ignored).

Using CVS libtool I am able to build static libraries against a set of
DLLs, but there are failures if --enable-shared is added to the
configure arguments.
