Sorry but this is just not true for the MSW DLLs. If the libtool user
tries to build a DLL, you can safely assume that it will not have undefined
symbols. Anything else just doesn't make sense because it would always
result in an error. Again, this is different from the traditional Unix
shared libraries.

Why do you say this? Most software built using libtool still comes from Unix type systems. Without the existing behavior it would be difficult to take a program developed on a Unix type system and just compile it under Windows. It is thought that errors are bad and successful compilation is good.
