Follow-up Comment #5, sr #108558 (project libtool):

Hmm, on second thought, that depends on MSYS (and MSYS2) still
thinking that an argument starting with more than two slashes
is a UNC path (or a switch). That might change if someone
points out that ///foo and /foo should be equivalent and that
Posix only considers //foo special and that command line
switches starting with /// are really uncommon... Relying on
corner cases in the MSYS argument conversion heuristics does
not seem to be a very good idea...

But maybe it's the best option anyway?

Maybe use ////dev/null, to handle a future MSYS stripping one
leading slash as it currently does for command line switches?

Then again, accidentally (or otherwise) creating an empty
C:\dev\null file does not seem totally unlikely, so maybe
using ////dev/null isn't so bright after all...
