'git' binary which is incompatible with the one in /usr/bin; if you run it,
it gives you an error about libiconv2.dll.

You might think we could just add $(git --exec-path) at the *end* of PATH,
but then if there are multiple versions of git installed, we could end up
with the wrong one; earlier versions used to put git-sh-setup in /usr/bin,
