I don't have (or want) access to Windows, but bootstrap has a '--skip-git' 
option. If you rebootstrap on your machine with that option, and the other 
tools (autotools, m4 etc) are new enough, and it doesn't work then you've found 
a bug. Some warnings about not finding a fit binary, and possibly out of date 
gnulib files are normal in this scenario.

If those other tools are not new enough to bootstrap Libtool, then you can take 
a tarball made with 'make dist' from another machine and test with that instead.
