Unfortunately quoting either way didn't work on Windows/msys when Thomas & I
were looking at this.

Before going down that path, I wanted to review the makefiles and see
whether quoting all occurrences of the path variables would be a
workable thing or not. That would be more desirable, if it's not a
maintenance nightmare, because it'd solve the problem everywhere instead
of only for Windows --- and there is a real risk on, say, Darwin.
One idea that comes to mind is to just quote the variables at point of
creation --- that is, write something like
override pkglibdir := "$(pkglibdir)"
in Makefile.global. I haven't tried this to see if it'd work or not ...
any comments? Would single or double quotes be most desirable?
