Follow-up Comment #14, bug #712 (project make):

One approach to fixing this would be to add a new type of variable that is not
expanded until the very last moment - when the dependency DAG and shell
commands are to be generated. It would not be separated into tokens; rather,
its contents would be treated as a single string that was verbatim
incorporated into the filename or shell command to be used.

This is similar to how the shell supports any shell variable that is expanded
within double quotes not being subject to word splitting and globbing.
