I'm slowly changing Makefile's that seem broken due to wrongly quoted
variables in command-line, after Todd's recent changes.  My
changes (which originally recht@ did for devel/glib2) are simply doing

	FOO=	\\\"${FOO}\\\"
	FOO=	\"\\\"${FOO}\\\"\"


	FOO=	"\"${FOO}\""

Both of the fomers are broken when the definitions are passed to as a
part of CFLAGS.  In most cases, configure fails as ${CC} ${CFLAGS}
won't run.  I'm not very sure about all cases, but the latter
("\"${FOO}\"") looks much saner and less broken to me.  Even if this
is not TRT, it would be easier to correct further.
