pg_config Makefile includes hyphens in configure arguments

Feeding `pg_config --configure` into configure no longer works, as the
output of `pg_config --configure` now includes hypens (as in
"'--enable-cassert' '--enable-debug'"), which configure rejects.

This appears to come from the change in the Makefile
(/src/bin/pg_config/Makefile), where

diff -r1.3 -r1.4
< # $Header: /projects/cvsroot/pgsql/src/bin/pg_config/Makefile,v 1.3
2001/09/16 16:11:11 petere Exp $
> # $Header: /projects/cvsroot/pgsql/src/bin/pg_config/Makefile,v 1.4
2002/03/29 17:32:55 petere Exp $
<           -e "s,@configure@,$$configure,g" \
>           -e "s,@configure@,$(configure_args),g" \

Is there a reason to keep this change if it breaks this feature, or is there
an easy way to fix this? (I'm not a serious Makefile user, sorry!)
