Follow-up Comment #1, bug #20542 (project make):

Sorry, I cannot reproduce this with a (non-MKS) port of a Unix shell. So this
looks like a problem specific to MKS.

If you can step through the function that invokes external programs
(process_begin, defined on w32/subproc/sub_proc.c) and its subroutine that
generates the command line with which to invoke the program
(make_command_line, in the same file), and tell where it fails or does
something wrong for the MKS shell, I could try to find a solution.

Failing that, please tell how would you invoke the MKS shell from another
Windows program, via the CreateProcess API, to run the exact same command
which failed for you in the case you reported.  I'm looking for any special
rules for quoting or escaping quotes you need to use with the MKS shell.
