Well, I guess if you build any DLL with MinGW, you're linking with
libmingw32.a, and libmingwex.a, (at the very least), and both of these
are static libraries, so I don't understand the postulate.  As for
libtool, well, I've always found it to be unnecessarily troublesome
when building Windows libraries, anyway.
