Follow-up Comment #7, bug #712 (project make):

How about simply: 

$(notdir "C:\Program Files\Company Name\Binary1.dll" "C:\Program
Files\Company Name\Binary2.dll")  

I think it's pretty clear what should happen here.  How hard is it to support
quoting properly?  After all most shells know how to quote intrinsically, and
GNU make is creating shell scripts for most things.

Heck, even *DOS* can accept quoted arguments.  Same argument for targets.  If
I expect spaces, I (should be able to):

"%.util" : "$(TEMP_PATH)/%.exe"
  cp "$*" "$(OUT_PATH)/$(notdir $*)"

Seems natural enough, is this type of thing I need to do in most
batch/shell/scripts anyway.
