How can I specify a variable that ends on a whitespace character (e.g.
in /etc/mk.conf or some other bmake script)?
Background: on IRIX 5.3 the linker syntax is not -rpath,dirname but
-rpath dirname. Consequently _OPSYS_RPATH_NAME should be something like
"-rpath ".
Using "'s or ''s does not do the trick through, nor does using "\ ".
