We know it's needed only after processing the files.

Why not invoke it anyway?

If the compile script is unnecessarily used, then compilation will be even slower. This seems particularly true for the Windows operating system where compilation using libtool already feels like compiling in molasses. It seems that Windows is very slow at executing (fork/exec) new programs.
