Not exactly, because I don't have access to an IRIX box.

libtool does that itself, for some reason.  libtool.m4's
AC_LIBTOOL_CONFIG has some code with the following comment

  # Now quote all the things that may contain metacharacters while being
  # careful not to overquote the AC_SUBSTed values.  We take copies of the
  # variables and quote the copies for generation of the libtool script.

Apparently this code is misbehaving for
lt_cv_global_symbol_to_c_name_address.  Can you please send a
self-contained bug report to <address@hidden>?  The libtool
manual contains advice about bug reports.
