CVS libtool fails under MinGW 1.0

Libtool (probably the 1.5 release) did used to work under MinGW.  A
recent libtool from CVS does not work properly under MinGW.  The
symptom is that libtool checks a DLL's validity using the 'file'
command.  This fails so use of the DLL library is rejected.

The MinGW MSYS environment does not provide a 'file' command so
libtool shouldn't be trying to use file magic tests.  It is
questionable if it is really necessary to test a file with a .DLL
extension to verify that what it most likely is.

I assume that a recent Cygwin enhancement to be more exacting is
causing MinGW builds to fail.
