If that works, use it.  I don't know why people keep saying that dlltool is obsolete
or deprecated.  It does things that ld --shared cannot do.  Building the mingw runtime
and w32api import libs  depend on it.

There was a discussuion on the cygwin lists some time ago about adding --non-relocatable switch
to ld, simply by stripping the .reloc section.

Maybe that could be re-visited. In any event, discussion should probably on binutils list.
