Follow-up Comment #12, bug #63070 (project make):

Ah, so the cause was as noted in

string literals are const.

Thanks for sorting it out, Dmitry, and sorry for the considerable trouble. 
Who'd have thought we'd have leak detection before const-correctness?  Well,
with hindsight, it's obvious that posix_spawn's prototype can't change, while
tool support can move as fast as it likes.
