libtool is GNU world program, which defaults to MinGW/Cygwin under
Windows. Maybe it can do MSVC format already, but I don't know the magic 
spell. What we would need is either a tool which creates the MSVC import 
.LIB out of the .DLL, or a two step .DLL -> .DEF then .DEF -> .LIB.
Doing this only using binutils would be a must.  The 'dlltool' program 
may be part of the solution. Any taker?
