So file a bug report with Qmake, and/or work around it in your M4

No, e.g., for path handling reasons already stated, this is already
wrong.  Also note that techincally you're cross-compiling, so you need
--host, and will encounter some more fun.

Forget about spaces in paths.  Grab CVS Libtool, search for the last
version of Peter Ekberg's Libtool patches for MSVC on this (or the
libtool-patches) list.  Alternatively, there's wgcc with its set of
Libtool patches, also to be found in this list's archive.  Neither patch
is currently part of Libtool as both cause regressions for unrelated

Hope that helps.
