msys-perl-wrapper is a fairly simple shell script that will munge -I path arguments.

Rewriting the script in perl { bash, sed foreach (-I) => exec perl } would remove the overhead of at least two shells spawned with each command invocation.  If msys has removed the need to handle drive letters while building the script could be deprecated.

Or just get rid of the one or two perl scripts we have left... what actually uses this any more, now that we got rid of preprocessor.pl?
mddepend, make-makefiles, and probably a bunch of random stuff that runs once or twice.
