VMS-style command quoting and MakeMaker
Message ID:
A question.  A good chunk of is just replacing this style:

        $(PERL) -I$(INST_LIB) -e 'whatever'

with this style

        $(PERL) "-I$(INST_LIB)" -e 'whatever'

Since I believe the later is perfectly acceptable on Unix, could we
just fix up MM_Unix to do that and chuck most of MM_VMS?

We would resurrect only the ones who believe in resurrection and who requested
to be resurrected after death.	We don't resurrect the ones who don't want to
come back to the physical world because raising the ones who didn't wish to
come back would be an act against their free will.
