Follow-up Comment #3:

The basic functionality is fixed: if you escape the colon it will work now.

The return value of $(wildcard ...) is a whole other problem.  The issue is we
can't have wildcard always quote the colons in its return value because
depending on the context you may not want the quote.  This is similar to the
problems we have with whitespace in filenames and I suspect that the solution,
when we implement it, will encompass both.

I think you can fake it by using subst to change a ":" to a ":" in situations
where that's needed...?
