I've run into the same problem - you need a patch, available here:
Perhaps this link should be added to the download.html page?
I don't think cygwin comes with libtool, either, so perhaps a link
to libtool would be helpful as well.
P.S. Does it matter which order you install libtool and glib in?
I had trouble with them until I 1) used --prefix=/usr with both and
2) installed libtool first - this seemed necessary in order for glib to
update some macros that libtool used.
