Please search on the libtool-patches list for Peter Ekberg's patches.
Not sure if this is the latest:
Then came the wgcc patches (also not applied), but they don't target
plain MSVC.

FWIW, the patches were against CVS HEAD.

There are (at least) two ways to do this:

1) expand some special environment variable 

2) allow through some special flag

(for aRchiver), could probably be used.  In the simplest case, it'd be
sufficient if the user could override $AR (with a program + options).
I think for most uses that would be sufficient within Peter's patches.
