Follow-up Comment #11, bug #59154 (project make):

[comment #9 comment #9:]
> I don't think this would require Make to parse double quotes.
> My guess is it would mean passing along expanded variables to the shell
without parsing the variable contents for newlines.
> If I have time, maybe I'll have a look at whether my guess is right.
