This looks like the same problem I had back when I experimented with the
Windows build. For some reason Makefiles generated by autoconf/automake
won't build the DLLs.

I haven't found a solution to this problem. I built the Windows binaries
with a handwritten Makefile which replaced the autoconf one (following
instructions on IIRC).

Unfortunately this was on a Windows laptop I don't have anymore and I
can't find that Makefile right now in the backups.

A lot has probably changed in autoconf world in these two years - have
you tried asking on their mailing list about this problem?
