VisualStudio is not a component of the Windows operating system, or is it?

| "(...) as a special exception, the source code distributed need not
| include anything that is normally distributed (in either source or
| binary form) with the major components (compiler, kernel, and so on)
| of the operating system on which the executable runs, unless that
| component itself accompanies the executable."

I'd strongly advise not to VisualStudio (or any other proprietary tools chain) 
with (L)GPL derived work unless your competent lawyer told you it's OK.

The .lib file really should be generated by binutils if it is useful.
