RE: [PATCH] Handle path to shell containing space

This is a way to reproduce the error: Copy sh to a path with space  and put it 
as a default shell command in makefile

i.e on Linux
copy /bin/sh to /tmp/test space/sh

create the makefiile with these lines:
SHELL=/tmp/test space/sh

        find *

Make will give an error like
make: /tmp/test: Command not found

It would be very helpful if you could provide an example of an 
incorrectly-behaving makefile.  Bonus points for turning it into an actual 
regression test in the GNU make test suite, but that's not strictly necessary.
