I'm not sure that I understand the question. I just installed PostgreSQL
from the FreeBSD port and selected the Tcl, Java, and OpenSSL options. I'm
guessing that whatever generated pg_config saw the spaces in, for example,
/usr/local/include/tk8.3" and added the single-quotes to protect them. Using
the same flavor of quotes at the outer level caused sh to terminate the
string early and attempt to interpret "/usr/local/include/tcl8.3" as a
I presume that the configure arguments were:
--enable-locale --enable-syslog --with-CXX
--with-java --with-openssl --enable-multibyte --with-tcl
The original quoted text got mangled by my mailer - there are many extra
newlines. Some of the above may get mangled, as well.
I think that this problem can be solved by using double quotes when
val_configure="....." is generated.
