Hi,

This patch fixes a libiberty bug in which zero-length arguments to "pex_run" subprocesses were silently dropped on MinGW.


Basically, the code does not quote parameters unless it has to, but this corner-case was forgotten.

OK?

	* pex-win32.c (argv_to_cmdline): Quote zero-length parameters.

	libiberty/testsuite/
	* test-pexecute.c (main): Insert check for zero-length parameters.
