This is a severe regression in libtool 2.x w.r.t. 1.5.26. On mingw, several
of the gettext tests fail because the executable wrapper created by the
libtool script does two bad things:
1) It converts argv[0] from a filename with backslashes to a filename with
2) It does word splitting on arguments that contain spaces.

Is the second point exposed by
  make check-local TESTSUITEFLAGS='-v -d -x -k "execute mode"'

If not, then tests/execute-mode.at should be amended to expose this.
If yes, does your patch make the test pass?

I post before 2-3 months one request about tests cases.
Most of the tests are skipped since one of the AT macros search for program without .exe suffix, aka 1.5x wrapper script. Since 2.4(?) it is replaced by wrapper binary , i.e. with .exe suffix and libtool test case skip most of the tests
