Subject: mysterious buildlink command line quoting problem

Hi -
could someone understanding the interactions between
"make" command line quoting and the buildlink wrappers
please have a look at the build of graphics/gimp-rawphoto?

What's done there is basically
CFLAGS=`gimptool --cflags`
At that point the backtick is taken literally (not resolved),
with BSD make as with gmake, but it should be resolved
when "gcc $(CFLAGS)" is executed. This doesn't happen, it
gives a warning "--cflags: not found" instead.

This used to work, so there is a regression which crept in recently.

best regards
