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,
"--with-includes=/usr/local/include /usr/local/include/tcl8.3
/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-includes=/usr/local/include /usr/local/include/tcl8.3
    --with-java --with-openssl --enable-multibyte --with-tcl
    '--with-tclconfig=/usr/local/lib/tcl8.3 /usr/local/lib/tk8.3'
    --prefix=/usr/local i386--freebsd4.3

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.
