libtool's documentation covers the replacement (win32-dll), along with
remarks about passing -no-undefined, I suggest removing this section from
the gnulib manual.

Good point. I prefer to keep this section, though, because it's an unexpected
behaviour of libtool that it contains support for all platforms out-of-the-box,
except for native Windows, where it has to be extra requested.
