I tried this program, and it verified that there's no problem on my
system, where sh.exe is a native Windows shell.  Here's what I get
with this Makefile rule:

        d:/full/path/to/rundump.exe  "a.c" "b.c"

d:/full/path/to/rundump.exe  "a.c" "b.c"
command line = {d:\full\path\to\rundump.exe a.c b.c}
argv[0] = {d:\full\path\to\rundump.exe}
argv[1] = {a.c}
argv[2] = {b.c}

So the MinGW binary of Make does not remove the outer layer of quotes,
and the subsidiary program sees 2 separate arguments.

What happens on your system?  Do you really see only one argument?
