Thank you for the patch! libtool went through a bit of a slow period where not much was merged in, but I'm hoping to clean it up.

Use -Fe with MSVC to specify DLL output filename

This avoids a deprecation warning with current versions of MSVC, and is documented as supported at least as far back as Visual C 6.0 which was released in 1998.

We've been successfully using this patch for bootstrapping Xapian releases since 2017, i.e. for over 6 years.  (I sent it to the libtool-patches mailing list in early 2018 but it seems it fell through the cracks.)
