Me neither. You need to figure out the root cause for this first,
instead of doing this:

which is not a good idea, you are just sweeiping the problem under the rug.

One thing I always do personally when building anything that uses
libtool on Windows is to avoid the shell script wrappers in libtool.
Edit (the one from a tarball, or the one that is installed
in whatever/share/libtool if you are building something from SVN) and
change the line

Then libtool will try to build exe files directly in each folder, not
into the .libs folder with a wrapper shell script. This might help. I
have been doing this for so long that I can't remember any more what
the exact reason was why I started doing it, though...

Note here that as libtool is using wrappers, the .exe that is being
created is .libs/gtk-update-icon-cache.exe. The gtk-update-icon-cache
in the folder itself is a shell script. There shouldn't be any
gtk-update-icon-cache.exe in the folder in this case, I think.
