I notice that the wrapper that libtool builds for MinGW/Cygwin still
has a nasty bug in which tests of a shared build will wrongly use an
already installed DLL rather than the one just built.  The system uses
PATH to search for DLLs.

We need a reproducible example for this, that helps to be able to work
on it before getting at a w32 system again.  At least the output of a
failed link (including the mode=link lines and output of all deplibs).
A testsuite test would be even better.

I am not sure how to wrap it up in a test. The problem is not an obscure error since it is always present. I am surprised that I am the only one who has reported the problem.
