Still doesn't, in fact the rebuild steps from my readme are as follows:

To rebuild this package from the source:
1) cd into /usr/src/tcp_wrappers_7.6
2) run make cygwin
3) strip all exe's
4) mv *.exe /usr/sbin
5) mv libwrap.a /lib

I am still open to looking at what it takes to DLL'ize the lib, and
willing to test it to see what gains we get from it... when I get the
chance ;)
