bug#49246: [PATCH] libtool with mingw hangs in func_convert_core_msys_to

Problem reported by a downstream Cygwin user inadvertently
misconfiguring a package cross-build with mingw toolchain:

libtool with mingw hangs building openocd in


The issue exists in libtool build-aux/ltmain.in line 963 in
func_convert_core_msys_to_w32 Windows subshell command:

        ( cmd //c echo "$1" )



where the switch char "/" is duplicated, so instead of executing one
command in the Windows subshell context, a subshell is spawned and hangs
until manually exited e.g.:

$ cmd //c echo "$1"
Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.19042.985]
(c) Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.


The patch merely removes the extraneous duplicated switch char "/".

As the patch is trivial, no copyright assignemnt should be required.
